BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
Its bright, tropical hop flavor and dry, spicy finish.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
The Australian Summer Hop and also the season we release the beer, Summer.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
Summer Saison would be fantastic sipped underneath the coconut palms of Clipperton Island with some fresh, fire-grilled crabs. Let's go!

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
We were inspired by a great hop from Australia, “Australian Summer.”  We wanted a tropical and refreshing beer that was a combination of flavors from mixing the Saison and American Pale Ale styles. 

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
I think Summer is fabulous with grilled meats and BBQ as well as spicy dishes like Curries and Thai cuisine.
