New Badge: Saison Day (2024)

Hoppy Saison Day!

While the official day commences tomorrow, we are getting the party started today with the release of the epic Saison Day (2024) badge. 

These beers originated on farms throughout the South of Belgium, also known as the French-speaking Wallonia region. Brewed seasonally (saison is a French word that translates to season) during colder months, saisons are aged and enjoyed in the summertime.

These small producers made beer with ingredients they had on hand or available locally. Grains included wheat, rye, spelt, and others in addition to barley.

Over time, expectations developed for what defines a saison. A variety of grains, both raw and malted, adds to the spicy, rustic quality of the drinking experience. The Belgian yeast imparts a distinct peppery flavor with a bit of fruit.

They're usually quite crisp and effervescent, with a dry finish that keeps you coming back for another sip.

Shoutout to Allgash Brewing, who started the official Saison Day holiday to help celebrate this beloved style just a little more every year.

How to earn: Check-in any Farmhouse Ale - Saison from April 26 to April 28 to unlock this annual badge.
