RALEIGH, NC - Feb. 6, 2017 - Lonerider Brewing Company, a craft brewery that prides itself on developing Ales for Outlaws, will be releasing a new Grapefruit Saison aptly named Sundance. With a dry wit as crisp and fresh as this Saison of the same name, Sundance exhibits legendary smoothness and taste. This is our spring seasonal Saison, a classic style made with fresh grapefruit.
"Sundance is the brainchild of our brewing team led by our head brewer Galen." Lonerider CEO Sumit Vohra explains. "What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with a traditionally inspired saison - brewed in the winter and enjoyed in the warmer months. Though the unpredictable North Carolina weather will certainly have it's say!"
"The inspiration to use grapefruit in Sundance came from wanting to add extra tartness and citrus flavors to the fruity, peppery flavors produced from the yeast used in this beer." Galen, Lonerider's head brewer, says proudly. Lonerider's spring seasonal also happens to be Galen's favorite style to brew. "Saison, by style has very broad guidelines. Our specific interpretation of Saison is mildly more tart than an average saison, and with the addition of Jarrylo hops gives it a unique hop aroma that you would find in an American IPA."
The anticipated release date will be March 6th.
