Release of Smallish – Petite Barrel Fermented Saison
Next Monday, 11/19, we will be releasing bottles of Smallish, a petite saison fermented and aged entirely in oak barrels with a blend of our house saison yeast strain, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus. Since starting Hacienda, we’ve been eager to produce low ABV mixed fermentation beers—and Smallish is the first of many to come. Smallish was brewed back in April, spent over 4 months in used white wine barrels, and finally conditioned for the last 3 months in bottles. Sitting at just 4% ABV, Smallish is funky, tart, and drinkable—a perfect beer to pair with a glutinous Thanksgiving meal. The funk and acidity of Smallish are rounded out by hints of candied lemon, cherry, rye, and oak. 750 mL bottles of Smallish will be sold at our taproom upon opening at 1pm on Monday, 11/19. We will also be selling bottles of Smallish for on-site consumption. If you are heading up to Door County for Thanksgiving, be sure to swing by the taproom and grab a couple bottles to share with family and friends.
