Beer Description

Perceived Distance is a collaboration with friends from about as far away as they can live and hops from about as close as they can be grown.⁣

We teamed up with Carl from Great Leap Brewing in Beijing and Nunzino from Hop Head Farms in Michigan to brew this saison with hops that were harvested less than 48 hours before we used them. We used a purposefully restrained hand and the gentlest extraction method we know in an effort to capture the unique character of freshly picked hops and delicately fold that character in the esters from our house yeast. The result is a striking integration of crushed cardamom, nutmeg, coriander, and pink peppercorn with fresh orange and grapefruit zest and a wisp of cedar.⁣
