This past Saturday, June 22, was a busy one for the folks down at COAST. First off, the inaugural Pint Pedal event – where bicyclers rode from the Palmetto brewery to COAST and back again to celebrate the Pint Law – was held that day. But on top of that, COAST planned to release a brand-new beer in a style they’ve never done before commercially: the saison.
I say “planned” because according to COAST’s Facebook page, it’s hard to carry bottles on bikes. Therefore, more bottles will be released this Thursday, June 27.
Saison du Fus (pronounced “dufus”) is a 7.3% saison that is “funky, tart and dry” brewed with a helping of Brett and in conjunction with their former intern Shane (he of current Westbrook DIPA fame, I believe?).
The beer is bottle only and available at the brewery, and hopefully in other markets soon.
