Merit - Dry Hopped Saison w. Orange Zest and Indian Coriander - 5.3 % - 355ml
Chanan is a beer that is made to honour my Grandfather, and the work that he and my Grandmother did in bringing over 1000 people from our village to Canada for a better life. They housed, clothed, fed, and employed everyone until they were able to go on their way securely and used their business, Merit Furniture, to facilitate this. I started brewing the beer that later became called Chanan as a beer that would pair perfectly with curries I would make at home. I wanted a beer that could stand up to, and add to, the depth of flavour and richness of many of my favourite curries so I started building that beer. Chanan is dry hopped – giving it bursting aromatics that match the intensity of aromas in a curry, it’s brewed with orange and Indian Coriander, two ingredients that compliment those used in some of my favourite dishes, and it’s fermented using a saison yeast that ensure a dry crisp finish that cleanses your palate after each bite, resetting it to make the next bite feel fresh and vibrant again!
