We will have  brewer Chris Kinast here for the event.  Meet the man who created this amazing beer for all of us!

"Corail de Saing is a Belgian style Saison with torrified wheat aged in red wine puncheons with Brettanomyces for seven months.  Bottle conditioned, oak aged and brewed in collaboration with Paul Hayden and The Wine and Cheese Place to celebrate their 35th Anniversary." - label

More info from Chris Kinast....
"Corail de Sang was brewed back in September with loads of Torrified Wheat and a touch of American hops in the whirlpool, and fermented in Stainless Steel with our house clean Saison strain. From there it was transferred into 2 French red wine Puncheons with a signal strain of brettanomyces (Brett claussenni) and aged for 6 months before being packaged. It was then bottle conditioned for another 3 before it's release. Huge notes of tannic oak and almost a tropical fruit sweetness round out the pallet with just a slight tartness to finish it up. A touch of residual sweetness and a medium to high carb lead to a finish that will entice wine, cider or barrel-aged Saison drinkers alike. Corail de Sang will continue to develop in the bottle and age nicely (maybe a couple of years), but most will not build up any additional acidity." - Chris Kinast, Perennial Brewer

We started planning this beer over a year ago now.  Chris Kinast of Perennial was the mastermind behind this beer.   The name is French for Blood Coral as Coral is traditional for 35th Anniversary.  Blood Coral is considered the finest Coral.

Thank you Perennial!
