Chef Anthony Roark will be pairing wild boar ribs, German potato salad, and Saison ceviche with grilled blue corn tortillas for the event.

BABS: Members will receive a complimentary beer poured by the host. You must purchase a beer from the bar and have a glass - BEFORE receiving the complimentary Saison pour.

What is a Saison ("season"), is a broadly defined pale ale that in modern versions is generally around 7% abv, highly carbonated, fruity, spicy - sometimes from the addition of spices -, and is influenced by Saison Dupont Vieille Provision. As a beer style it originated from beers brewed during the cooler and less active months in farmhouses in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, and then stored for drinking by the farm workers during the summer months. It is believed that these farmhouse beers would have been of a lower abv than modern saisons - probably initially around 3 to 3.5% abv on average, rising in the early 20th century to between 4.5 and 6.5% abv. Modern saisons are brewed in a range of countries, particularly the USA, and are generally bottle conditioned.

See you there!

    Very nice. The ability to choose what you tasted at the smaller serving size was terrific.

    NEW FLASH!!!

    YOU CAN PURCHASE FLIGHTS OF SAISON SAMPLES TO TRY. Not sure what the price is - but this saves you the issue of purchasing a full glass and not liking the beer.

    Do I understand this right, is The Trappist giving us free beer? Thanks for hooking this up Cliff!

      Here's the deal on the BABS pour. 1. Show up and purchase a beer from the bar. 2. Keep your glass and find me in the patio - where I will pour a complimentary taste of another Saison. This is a chance to SAMPLE another Belgiun Saison. After the sample -if you like...try another Saison from the bar.
