Tarpon Springs- On Friday, Saint Somewhere Brewing Company announced two collaboration farmhouse ales in the works with two breweries in the farmhouse region of Belgium and France.
In October, Saint Somewhere brewer Bob Sylvester will travel as a guest of Bon Beer Voyage on a trip to Belgium and France where he will brew his collaboration beers with Brasserie Thiriez of Esquelbecq, France and Brasserie de Cazeau of Templeuve, Belgium. Most of the beer from Bob’s collaboration with the Thiriez Brewery will be imported back to the United States. In the words of Bob Sylvester: “Both [collaboration beers] will be in the Farmhouse tradition…one Belgian, one French and by two of my favorite breweries.”
Both Cazeau and Thiriez breweries make farmhouse ales available in Florida from retailers who specialize in imported ales. Cazeau brewery traces its roots back to brewing traditions begun by family members around 1753, while Cazeau brewery began brewing in 1996. Cazeau brewery is most known for “Saison de Cazeau” and Thiriez is known for “Thiriez Extra.” For more information, see the links to each brewery’s websites.
