Introducing Lee Hill Series, Volume 2, Wild Saison

Upslope Brewing Company Lee Hill Wild SaisonGet ready for round two, folks… we’re introducing a Wild Saison – Volume 2 of our Lee Hill Series!

Volume 2, Wild Saison, delivers bright notes of ripe fruit imparted by the Saison yeast and is nicely balanced by the tartness of the Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. The farmhouse inspired 6.8% abv sour ale was aged for seven months in select red wine barrels then packaged in 19.2-ounce cans.

“Our Lee Hill Series gives us the opportunity to showcase our experimental side and these highly limited brews are a fun experience for our brewers and fans alike,” said Head Brewer, Sam Scruby. “We’re excited to release Volume 2 and share our American sour take on a classic beer style.”

Following the overwhelming success of the Barrel Aged Brown Ale, the first volume of the Lee Hill Series, we are continuing our commitment to innovation and crafting small batches of beer. The Wild Saison will certainly be another cellar keepsake.

Beer lovers wanting to try the second installment on tap or score a can for their cellar should head to our Lee Hill Tap Room ($10/19.2 oz can; limit 4 per customer).
