WILLIAMSPORT, PA - The Bavarian Barbarian Brewing Company is pleased to announce the release of a new summer special: HARD TIMES BELGIAN FARMHOUSE ALE.
This newest creation is a unique interpretation of a classic Saison. Up front, there are peppery and citrusy notes that slowly give way to more sublime spice and fruit characters. Refreshing and somewhat dry, the mélange of spices, especially the addition of sassafras root, give HARD TIMES a very complex profile.
HARD TIMES ALE is a reflection of the tough economic times we all face. Inspired by our own limited funds, the grain was put together from leftover malts from previous recipes, the yeast was borrowed from the Bullfrog Brewery and spices were procured from Williamsport's Freshlife Market.
