One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Beery Christmas Day 1

Beery Christmas!  Day 1 of December has arrived so I ran down the stairs like a kid on Christmas morning to opening the first door of my Beer Hawk advent calendar.

The first beer is Worker's Comp - Saison brewed by Two Roads Brewing Co in Connecticut.  I do have family in Connecticut so it's a rather fitting beer to find behind door number 1.

Worker's Comp - Saison is described on Two Roads' website as:

A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavours and aromatics.  Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore.  The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper).

4.8% ABV in a 355ml bottle

Found for sale on Honest Brew for £2.69
