Yards Brewing Company Saison

Warmer weather is on the horizon and a bright, sunny day is perfect with a bright, refreshing Yards Saison! Saisons were traditionally brewed on Belgium farmhouses in the winter season to be consumed in the summer by the farm workers. They were made strong enough to age throughout the long season, yet with a low enough alcohol content so as not to disrupt the workload in the field! Saisons are extremely complex with a champagne-like effervescence, a slight sweetness and a dry, bitter finish. Expect big flavors of tart citrus, fresh yeast and sugar with hints of peppercorn, coriander and a wide variety of other spices. Yards Saison will dazzle your taste buds with its long, lingering, slightly dry finish and leave you thirsty for just one more sip!


Yards Brewing Company has been brewing up their version of the Saison in the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ for more than a decade. They use Styrian Goldings hops which are known best for their aromatic qualities and spicy, earthy notes. This beer is flavorful, delicate and fruity and clocks in at 6.5%. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!

Looking to pair it with your dinner? Saisons are also one of the most food-friendly beers out there; it’ll work well with everything from BBQ to Brie cheese, a pot of mussels or a little Southeastern Asian spice.

What’s up next from Yards? The always amazing Cape of Good Hope – It changes year to year and pays homage to the original style and adventurous spirit of the first British IPAs. Then, the delightfully refreshing PYNK– each batch is brewed with over 3,000 pounds of fresh raspberries and both sour and sweet cherries.
