Kurt’s Farmhouse Saison 

vonnegut

Availability:September 12
Style: Saisons are a complex style of beer traditionally brewed in the winter and stored for the farm hands to drink over the summer and harvest months.  They tend to be fruity or spicy but not sweet and have a have a slight earthy yeast tone to them.   Our interpretation of this famous style is dry and tart with some fruity spicy overtones and pronounced lemon characteristics that comes from the French Aramis Hops.
Description: When Brewmaster Todd Marcus was approached by Ted Lowrie, President of the Board of Trustees of the Sturgis Library, to somehow participate in the upcoming Columbus Day weekend Vonnegut Celebration, the idea of special beer quickly came to mind.  Together with the brew crew and the library staff, brainstorming began on a name and beer style.  This of course is never as easy as it sounds, and dozens of names were suggested.  Given that Vonnegut was captured during the Battle of the Bulge in the Wallonia region of Belgium where Saisons are most famous, the style seemed perfectly appropriate.  His capture led to the writing of one of his most famous works: Slaughterhouse-Five.  This, combined with a candid photo provided by Vonnegut’s daughter showing Kurt relaxing in front of a barn house door on Scudders Lane, led to a moment of clarity and Kurt’s Farmhouse Saison was born.
OG:12.2 °P (1.049SG)   ABV:5.5%    IBU’s: 18
Malts: German Pilsner, English Wheat and German Vienna   Hops: Domestic – French Aramis – 2 additions

Common 125

Availability: March 24
Style: Common Beer
Description: “Common Beer” was originally brewed for the working class. First produced in the mid-19th century-this style is known for its clarity, and refreshing nature. Cape Cod Common is a mash-up (pun intended) of an ale and a Lager. We pitched Lager yeast and fermented it at a higher temp-like an ale. Our take on this old school American style is crisp and easy to drink. Flavors of biscuit are tucked into the background-with a subtle, but present hop aroma and flavor.

Ours is unfiltered, with a strong, rounded, malty backbone that showcases the aromatic yeast, letting its fruity, banana-like quality do the talking.   At 8% this beer is no lightweight and will help keep you warm on the coldest of nights. We took our time lagering this gem to a smooth perfection; we hope people will take their time enjoying it.”  This beer uses the same special yeast used in Cape Cod Summer Ale, and Cape Cod Beer’s award winning Dunkelweizen.
