Corvallis, Ore. - ... This week 2 Towns Ciderhouse introduces Sun’s Out Saison, the newest in its Limited Release line of rare, one-off ciders. Sun’s Out Saison is made with tart, fresh-pressed Northwest apples fermented on peaches with an authentic French saison yeast. Roll up your sleeves, or better yet, rip ‘em off to get ready for this unfiltered, dry, slightly spicy and phenolic cider, with lots of big, clean, fresh-peach aromatics. Savor liquid sunshine from Oregon’s leading craft cider producer.
“Saison yeast lends very specific qualities to beer, qualities that we thought would be fantastic in cider,” said Dave Takush, head cidermaker at 2 Towns Ciderhouse. “We expected that its profile would complement the copious amounts of fruit-- over 46 pounds of peaches per barrel of Sun’s Out Saison. We ended up with a cider that is complex, tart, and fruity with a classic saison nose.”
Sun’s Out Saison has been crafted in the traditional manner and inspired by golden peaches from Northwest farms. The fruitiness and complexity complement light dishes like spinach with cranberries and walnuts, asparagus quiche, a salad of poached egg with pancetta, and much more.
Sun’s Out Saison will be available to distributor partners in Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, Minnesota and Chicago in 500 ml bottles, ⅙ BBL & ½ BBL kegs. Select grocery chains and bottle shops will carry Sun’s Out Saison in bottles.
