A Note on This Beer
Punch Magazine says Seattle’s Holy Mountain Brewing creates some of the best Saisons in America — part of the “‘farmhouse elite’ alongside California’s Sante Adairius, Vermont’s Hill Farmstead and Colorado’s Casey Brewing.”
For Holy Mountain, every small batch of beer is an exercise in experimentation, devotion to detail, and a chance to brew a craft unlike the one before. Today’s Saison, Providence Sorrow, is no different — a delicious, shining example of this expertise and creativity.
This Saison begins with pilsner malt, malted and flaked, golden oats, and malted spelt — rustic grains that gently balance additions of real orange peel, citrus-soaked Mandarina Hops, and earthy Noble Saaz Hops.
The blend ferments on house cultures for added sour-apple tang and aged in an oak foeder for true, sweet farmhouse funk. It’s magically complex, crisp, and clean; the kind of ale farmers in a Tolstoy novel would drink after a long day of wheat scything.
And, while some of us can only dream of warm, late summer days outdoors instead of cold ones in front of the computer screen, that salt-of-the-earth, fresh field terroir absolutely flows from this Holy Mountain Saison. The only problem is that we have a mere 36 cases to share.
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!
