Saison Day with Blackberry Farm and Allagash
Saison season has arrived. On April 8th, Allagash Brewing Company and Blackberry Farms will be celebrating saisons. In homage to this style of beer’s multiplicity of different flavors, colors, and ingredients, Allagash is partnering with a selection of breweries, bars, and brewpubs that span the country.
“Saison actually means ‘season’ in French, and refers to the fact that these beers were brewed seasonally, during winter,” said Jason Perkins, Brewmaster at Allagash. “As far as ingredients go, farmers used whatever they had on hand—barley, rye, spelt, or anything else. They then stored the beer to be drank during the hot summer months.”
The Porter will be the host to the Saison Day celebration at their 1156 Euclid Ave. location in Atlanta GA. They’ll be serving a wide variety of beers from Allagash Brewing Company, and (of course) their own beers. The celebration kicks off at 12:00 PM at 1156 Euclid Ave. Also in attendance will be one of Allagash’s own brewers, there to enjoy beers and answer any beer questions attendants may have.
