Back in January 2019, Buoy Beer released the first two of three beers from its new Foeder Series Batch 1. Now the third and final release, Brett Saison with Cranberries joins the previously released Brett Saison, a blend of three saisons and Dry-Hopped Brett Saison with Azacca, El Dorado, and Meridian hops.

All three beers in this new series were brewed using Buoy’s new 60-barrel foeder. Now Brett Saison with Cranberries joins the other two brett beers after spending four months in local red wine barrels.

Buoy Beer describes their Brett Saison Foeder Beer as, “A blend of three saisons all featuring pilsner, wheat, Vienna, and buckwheat malts, acidified with our house lactobacillus, steeped with additions of lemon, orange, and grapefruit peel in the whirlpool, with Oregon grown Meridian hops layered throughout. Aged in our foeder for 10 months with our house brettanomyces blend then transferred in thirds into separate brite tanks. The first third was bottled “as-is,” the second third was dry-hopped with Azacca, El Dorado, & Meridian hops, the third received additions of Starvation Alley cranberries.”
