Surf Brewery Releases California Saison to Commemorate 25th Anniversary of the Ventura County Chapter of Surfrider Foundation


Ventura, CA —  The Surfrider Foundation is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the ocean, waves and beaches. In 1991, a handful of passionate people met in Ventura to establish one of the first local Chapters for Surfrider. Over the past 25 years the Ventura County Chapter has worked on a number of coastal issues with a longtime focus on protecting Surfer’s Point in Ventura.   From water quality testing to beach cleanups to bringing down a dam, Surfrider Foundation volunteers do their best to protect and enjoy the coast, now and for future generations.

Surf Brewery, proudly based in Ventura, has been a proud supporter of the local Surfrider Chapter, since our inception in 2011.  So much so, that we have contributed over $35,000 to their efforts in the area for the past five years, and have cooperated on multiple fundraisers and events.  “When it was time to Celebrate a 25 year milestone, we all thought a limited release beer, would make a great reminder of the special occasion.” states Head Dude Bill Riegler of Surf Brewery.  “We will also have a release bash in our parking lot with live music to ‘sample’ the new brew, on Saturday, October 29.  It will make for a classic Ventura day.”

This is what we call a California Saison. It has a light and dry body from the use of local Orange Blossom Honey. High in wheat percentage adds a nice mouth feel that we couple with the pleasant citrus/stone fruit characters of our hop addition. To add the final layer of complexity, the use of French Saison yeast makes this a one of a kind refreshing beer, suitable for an anniversary.
