We put our heads together with the distinguished beer-sorcerers at Yeast of Eden and came up with a seriously lovely funky saison. Starting with a base of Oregon-grown Mecca Grade pilsner and wheat malts, we hopped in the whirlpool with Mosaic, Hallertau Blanc, and Saaz before fermentation with mixed house cultures from both breweries. We aged this magnificent combo in white wine barrels and capped the whole thing off with a generous addition of pineapples, yielding marvel of bright, tropical funk that reveals itself more with each magical sip.

This unbelievably delightful sour blond was fermented with house cultures and aged in red & white wine barrels prior to blending and subsequent racking onto a bed of fresh, ripe peaches and peach puree. What emerged from this fateful convergence of wood, stone fruit, and microflora is a tart, complex beverage of boss-level proportions, with deep, developed funkiness underneath bright peach flesh and lively carbonation. Honestly, it would be straight-up weird if you didn’t enjoy the hell out of it.

This bag of caffeinated flavor-sorcery arrives to us care of the Mandalay Coffee Group, a pretty dope company at the forefront of Myanmar’s specialty coffee movement. Not only do they curate some extremely delicious beans, but they facilitate growth and market access for a lot of small coffee producers in the region, which we think is a pretty rad thing to do. This particular natural-process coffee was grown at 1361 meters above sea level and yields a bright, fruity profile with notes of peach and pear that’s virtually guaranteed to kindle warm feelings within the lucky recipient of it’s warm, liquid embrace. Actually, that “warm” part is negotiable, since it makes a pretty stellar cold brew as well.
