Townsite Brewing 7800 Saison ReleaseTownsite Brewing 7800 Saison Release7800 Saison: noun: 1. the distance as the cuckoo flies between our brewer’s hometown and Powell River; 2. a delicious Belgian style saison

Saison 7800 is a Belgian style of beer that originated in the southern farmlands of Belgium from whence Townsite’s Brewer Engineer Cédric hails. The name itself refers to the distance between his home town of Horrues and Powell River – 7800km as the ‘coucou’ flies.

Originally brewed to honour the arrival of Cédric and Chloe’s son, Hugo, 7800 Saison is now a regular offering in the brewery’s line up.

Look for it in select private liquor stores on the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver and Vancouver Island and, of course, at the brewery store. But hurry! This is brewed in limited quantities.

OG: 13.5 PLATO
FG: 2.0
ABV: 6.5%
IBU: 28

NEXT UP: We made a sour version too!
