Belgian Style Ale - Saison/Farmhouse

A portion of Elwha River Spelt Pale from the great LINC Malt in the grain bill gives Pierre a soft, fuller body while remaining brisk on the palate. Classic Saaz hops bring lovely floral and spicy notes that mingle with the light tartness and dry finish of
our mixed culture. Pivotal experiences are not easy to come by and at Fair Isle, our goal is to provide you with a connection to beer and where we live. We are a brewery in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle creating farmhouse beers rooted in the Pacific Northwest. Farmhouse beer originated before the industrial revolution when beer was not yet produced with laboratory isolated and tightly controlled commercial yeasts, as is common today. Instead, beer was naturally fermented with wild yeasts and bacteria. Because the yeast cultures were locally and naturally occurring, the beers were unique to each specific brewery’s location, creating flavors representing a specific place and time. Today, farmhouse bee doesn't have to be brewed on a farm; its more about a mindset and respect for its origins. It’s about embracing variation rather than avoiding it. We like to think of ourselves as shepherds rather than controllers - giving our fermentation cultures the time they need to make great beer.
