A generously hopped saison aged for 1 month with over 500 pounds of plums in the wood for our friends at Plum Market. That adds up to over ten pounds per barrel, which lend a deep plum color with intriguing plum and tart citrus notes in the aroma and flavor.
Once again, my friends, we brew a beer in celebration of one of my favorite places to shop for beer. And other good stuff too, I guess, but for me it’s mostly about the beer. But you knew that, right?
Yes, I am that guy in Plum Market, with the cart teeteringly full of more beer than a human should possibly need, and a smattering of other random goods de gourmet.
So, my friends, a toast to this. Another new beginning; this time in celebration of Plum Market’s latest Ann Arbor store. A very different beer aged in oak on a boat load of plums. More than ten pounds of plums per barrel of beer to be precise. All those plums. Mmmmmm, plums.
Cheers & Mahalo plenty!
