He came, he saw, he saison-ed. During his visit to Melbourne for Good Beer Week, Brian Strumke from Stillwater Artisanal completed three collaborations - all of them variations on his favourite style of beer. The first of them to hit venues is the one he created at Mornington Peninsula on a brew day that was also an event at which guests travelled to the brewery for the day. The guests were allowed to choose the name and, what with the saison featuring native Australian pepperberry, they chose Peppers Lonely Farmhouse Ale. The resulting beer clocks in at 5.6 percent ABV and had its pepperberries added in both the mash and fermenter. Completely the locally focused picture, only Australian grown hops were used too. According to Mornington's head brewer AG: "The beer presents with a rich golden hue and abounds with ginger and fruity esters on the nose leading into a palate of fruit and spice. Pepper notes late in the palate provide a suitably dryish finish."
