Maui Brewing Re-releases ‘Lemongrass’ Saison with The Lost Abbey

Maui Brewing Company is pleased to announce the first limited release brew of 2017, ‘Lemongrass’ Saison. Originally produced as a collaboration in 2013 with The Lost Abbey of San Marcos, California, the Belgian-inspired Saison is brewed with locally raised lemongrass.

“A simple Saison brewed with local Lemongrass is something I had wanted to do but never attempted. Our original batch of this beer was the culmination of that vision; and Maui Brewing’s skillful use of this amazing flavor makes me truly wish it was available more often. In revisiting this recipe, my wishes are coming true,” said Tomme Arthur, COO and Co-Founder of The Lost Abbey.

Lemongrass Saison utilizes White Wheat, Oats, Pilsner malt, Cascade and El Dorado hops. A total of 200 pounds of lemongrass was used for the whole project at a ratio of 40 lbs. per 100-barrel batch.

The opportunity to taste the light esters and subtle spice of Lemongrass Saison begins this Friday at both Maui Brewing Company locations in Kihei and Lahaina. MBC will offer a special “Keep the Glass” commemorative can glass. Fans will be able to add to their Flagship Can Set collection which became available during the holidays. Lemongrass Saison, at 5.2 percent ABV and 15 IBUs, will be available in 6-pack cans and draft in all markets where Maui Brewing Company craft beer can be found.
