This past weekend, our Spring City Saison won a Gold Medal at the US Open Beer Championship in Ohio. This is our second medal in two years at the US Open (a bronze for the Paradocs Red IIPA in 2016), and our fourth medal in the past two years.
Spring City Saison is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale brewed with local honey. Traditionally brewed for local farmhands using local ingredients, Raised Grain brewed this beer for the people of Waukesha, named for the great city Raised Grain calls home. Waukesha was made famous in the 19th century by its natural springs.
Dr. Jimmy, one of the brewers and owners, has roots in Belgium. He would travel back to Belgium as a child to visit his family that still lives there. On a recent trip back, Jimmy and Dr. Scott Kelley, brewmaster and owner, took inspiration and brewed a beer similar to what Jimmy enjoyed while visiting his family.
Come to the taproom to get some Spring City on draft, or come check out our Pop-Up Beer Gardens--the Spring City Saison has been a huge hit on hot days in the park!
