Just two days after putting the newest batch of SaisonHands on tap, Tired Hands Brewing Co. has released a new incarnation of the saison in bottles.
Ourison uses the Ardmore, Pa.-based brewery’s SaisonHands (4.8 percent ABV) as its base, but it is conditioned longer in oak before undergoing a “lengthy” bottle conditioning period. First released in 2013, SaisonHands is brewed with four different grains including rye, oats and wheat as well as cascade hops and is fermented in a large oak foudre for two months.
“Ourison represents the progression and evolution of our Saison fermentation program,” reads a post on Tired Hands’ Instagram page. “The end result is a highly refined snappy and pungent Saison that, I feel, is one of the most simplistic and exciting iterations of Saison that we have ever produced.”
According to the brewery, Ourison is packaged in 750ml bottles ($15) with a limit of two bottles per person per day and is on sale now at Tired Hands’ Fermentaria. The new beer is not a limited release, and in fact will be available on a “semi-regular basis” as the brewery will be conditioning and bottling a “a good percentage” of each batch of SaisonHands going forward in order to produce more Ourison.
