Beer: Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale


Tanks for the Memories

You have to call your beer something. I'm not sure that "tank" is that something, but I didn't produce a tasty saison like the folks at Boulevard Brewing. It has all of the usual characteristics: fruity, spicy, highly carbonated, straw-colored, and, frankly, it makes me wonder why I don't pair pepper and citrus more when I cook. Saisons are traditionally a summer ale, but it still felt right in November.

Costco has been picking up a lot of these summer ales as the seasons get gray. If you're a member take advantage of this chance to pick up some different styles cheaply. If not, they might still be available at your local beer merchant. Try their handy Beer Finder and have a look!
