NEWPORT, Ky. — Dedicated to innovation, Braxton Labs is excited to release a Saison that uses the unique Saccharomyces “bruxellensis” Trois yeast. Hopped with the tropical Citra hops, this saison features an array of tropical fruit characteristics. The 500ml bottles will be released on Saturday, April 21st beginning at 11am.
“Between things like mixed fermentations/souring, fruit additions, and dry hopping, saison has long been a style that dedicates itself to creativity and innovation. At Labs we wanted to continue that tradition by brewing with two distinctly different yeasts,” said Zac Boehnke, Lead Innovation Brewer at Braxton Brewing Company. “With the brett-like tropical notes from the Trois yeast and the dry, earthy, and spicy notes from the Belle Saison strain, we created a uniquely tropical saison and are extremely excited to share these bottles with you.”
This project highlights Braxton Labs’ continued innovation and experimentation. Since opening in May of 2017, Braxton Labs has innovated with hop profiles, malt profiles, adjuncts and more. This is the first product that truly highlights a unique yeast strain. The “Trois” yeast is typically used for wild yeast fermentations and produces a slightly tart beer with delicate mango and pineapple characteristics.
Braxton Labs was born to capture the spirit of the garage where Braxton Brewing Company started. Located in Newport, Kentucky, the brewery and taproom are dedicated to innovation and creativity.
The 500ml bottles will be $5.99 for one bottle or $19.99 for four. In a very limited quantity, they’ll be released Saturday, April 21st at 11am in Braxton Labs’ taproom.
“When determining creative and innovative beers to put in bottles on a monthly basis, we had to think outside of the box,” said Evan Rouse, Chief Product Officer at Braxton Brewing Company. “Zac did a killer job with this beer utilizing multiple yeasts and citrus forward hops in what would be a classic farmhouse ale without these additions.”
