Beer From Here 1

Black Shirt Brewing Co.

Beer name: Stringbender Saison

Brewery: Black Shirt Brewing Co.

Style: saison

Price: $10 for a 6-pack

Abv: 7.5

Hops: 1

Flavor: Lightly Belgian-spiced with notes of citrus

Aroma: Earthy and slightly fruity

Would taste best with: A dish on the lighter side (and who doesn’t need a lighter meal after the holiday rush) would do well to not overpower the unique flavors found in this saison. Try it with a stir fry or veggie kebob.

Overall: This Belgian inspired beer offers the fruity undertones one comes to expect with a saison. This lightly spiced brew is the perfect beer to round off a day on the slopes, but is just as tasty enjoyed under a blanket at home.

Final comments: Take a ride to RiNo and check out this family owned brewery specializing in red ales. In nicer weather, the patio is perfect for a small gathering of friends or an after work wind-down.
