I had this beer on draft while sitting in Hopewell the other day. Hopewell is great because they have an option to get a 22oz beer on draft and of course I’m going to say yes to that…
On to the beer, the Family Saison is a well-made, very refreshing beer. It has a sweeter taste that turns semi-bitter in the aftertaste. A saison is usually very refreshing and holds a lot of flavors and this beer does that. It has a golden-hazy color to it and a pungent citrus smell to it. It has some notes of banana and citrus in the actual flavor. Overall, a great beer to drink when it’s warm out.
Hopewell Brewing Company is based out of the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, IL. It’s within walking distance from where I live and I need to go there more often. They have beers on draft, beers to go, and some pretty cool merchandise. Their taproom is a cool place to hang out, pet dogs, and play some board games.
