Killarney Brewing Spailpin Saison Farmhouse Ale (750ml)
The Saison is a farmhouse ale, dating back to the Belgian countryside in the 1700’s. Traditionally each farm had its own recipe containing a good share of hops and a slew of spices, brewed in the winter to be enjoyed in the hot summer months with their seasonal farm workers.
A ‘Spailpín’ was a seasonal farmworker in Kerry from the 1700’s to the early 1900’s. They were poorer than than most & travelled from farm to farm during harvest months with their families.
Inspired by this tradition we brewed this beer using traditional Belgian malts and brewing techniques but relying solely on the spicy character of the yeast and complementing with unique hops that bring out an apple, pear and melon flavour and aroma.
