“Thomas,” the third entry in Westbrook‘s Bearded Farmer series of saisons, was released at the brewery last week and began hitting store shelves across the state on Wednesday.
Following in the footsteps of the first two entries, Thomas is tweaked from the previous incarnation. This time around, the 7.8% ABV, 75 IBU saison is brewed with Pilsner and Munich malts; Wakatu, Motueka and Pacific Gem hops; and is fermented with a single strain of French saison yeast. Unlike Hughey and McCullough, Thomas doesn’t have any Brett in it.
Thomas is available in 750s and on draft. Greenville and Charleston already have it and it should show up in Columbia soon.
