POWELL RIVER, BC – Townsite Brewing has announced details of a new seasonal beer planned for release next month.
7800 Saison is a 6.5% ale that is described as follows:
Saison 7800 is a Belgian style of beer that originated in the southern farmlands of Belgium from whence Townsite’s Brewer Engineer Cedric hails. The name itself refers to the distance between his home town of Horrues and Powell River – 7800km as the ‘coucou’ flies. This year’s brew is also subtitled ‘Coucou gamin’ which is a traditional Belgian greeting for a new baby and loosely translated means ‘Hi little guy!’ We are very excited to let everyone know that Cedric and his wife Chloe (Townsite’s Brewery Manager) will welcome a new family member, Hugo, at the end of September!
7800 Saison will be released in early September, and will be available in 650 ml bomber bottles at select private liquor stores in British Columbia while supplies last.
