This October, we wrapped up fest season with a release dear to our hearts. Before opening Dorćol, Boyan and Chris made sure to take a trek up to Big Bend every year to take in the great outdoors. Running a business means the treks are now a little less frequent, but their love for camping and unplugging is still present.
That’s why this September we teamed up with Community Cultures Yeast Lab’s Mara and Rob to create a Black Saison made using brewer’s yeast harvested from the Ocotillo plant in Big Bend National Park.
The result of the day-long brew was the HighWheel Black Saison, a darker version of the classic Belgian farmhouse style, that doesn’t drink dark, but instead delivers notes of pear, apple, pepper and clove with a nice funkiness that defines a good saison.
To continue celebrating the park, we’re donating a portion of every pour and keg sold to benefit Friends of Big Bend. So if you’re a fan of one of Texas’s greatest places, make sure to stop by and enjoy a pour of this wonderful brew.
