Official Stones Throw Press Release
Stones Throw Brewery is excited to announce the release of their bottled Brett Saison for sale ($14/per 750ml bottle) on Tuesday, October 23rd!
Beginning at 12 noon on Tuesday, October 23rd, patrons will be able to purchase up to 4 bottles. This is only the second-ever batch of beer released in bottles by Stones Throw Brewery, currently in their third year of operations in the heart of downtown Fairhaven, Bellingham.
While the entire batch will eventually supply a grand total 240 bottles over the following 6 months, this special release is limited to just the first 90 bottles that have matured and been prepared.
Barrel-aged in Hungarian Oak and bottle conditioned, this Brett Saison was crafted last Spring here in Fairhaven with great care and joy by former Stones Throw brewer Sam Hutchens, who is currently at Garden Path Fermentation in Skagit Valley. Brewed using locally grown and malted grains and Belgian Saison yeast, Hutchens grew and propagated his own culture of Brettanomyces for this special batch, as well as utilizing wort from Stones Throw’s award-winning Raincountry Liquid Sunshine Pilsner-Style Lager and Saaz hops.
This Brett Saison comes in at 6.0% ABV and 40 IBU, and is best served between 45º-55ºF. Patrons can either purchase a bottle to take home or enjoy while in the taproom. If enjoying in the taproom, the beertender must open the bottle behind the bar, and only unopened bottles are legally allowed to leave the property (aka: once it’s opened at Stones Throw, it must be consumed at Stones Throw, according to liquor law).
Cheers, we hope you join us in enjoying this Brett Saison specially brewed for friends and family!
