Souring the 7800 – Townsite Brewing Mixes Up Their 2016 Saison Brew

Townsite-7800-Sour-SaisonA Twist on A Powell River Classic: The 7800 Sour Saison

Powell River, BC – Release: June 2016

Back by popular demand.

7800 Saison: noun: 1. the distance as the cuckoo flies between our brewer’s home town in Belgium and Powell River; 2. a delicious Belgian style sour saison

Cédric and his gang of bandits are it again, souring that is. If 2015 was the year of sour experimentation then 2016 is the year of sour perfection. Townsite brewers have been hard at work honing their sour skills over the winter.

First up in our summer sour series is this tangy zinger. The floral, earthy, spicy saison flavours are complemented by a zippy tartness thanks to the use of lactobacillus.

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

OG: 13.2 PLATO
