Trading Post Releases 2017 Batch of Dear James SMaSH Saison

Trading Post Brewing in Langley BC has announced the release of their new Dear James SMaSH saison.

With notes of fruit and spice, this SMaSH (single malt and single hop) saison was brewed exclusively with floor-malted Bohemian Pilsner malt and Mosaic Hops—a perfect complement to any occasion or season.

“Dear James” refers to a letter written to HBC Chief Trader James Murray Yale, urging him not to marry a woman with whom he had been enamoured with during his first years at the fort. Ignoring the outrageous plea, James married the woman he loved and fathered two daughters with her.

You can find it at the Trading Post tasting room today and bottles will be available at select liquor stores on the lower mainland and on Vancouver Island late next week.

Stats: 6.5% ABV; 26 IBUs
