If/When is a true collaboration woven from three threads with our friends at Hopewell. Three beers that trace the evolution of the Bierè de Coupage tradition of blending aged saison with fresh saison.
This thread is the base Bierè à Coupage or beer for cutting. It is the fresh expression of saison usually intended to be blended with the old stock. This Bierè à Coupage is brewed with malted Carolina Gold rice for a crisp nuttiness and hopped judiciously with Hallertau Blanc hops. It then has a slurry of Hopewell’s house wild culture added to it at bottling which add a very subtle acidity and moderate brettanomyces funk.
