Blind Bat/Long Ireland Spring 2012 Collaboration Saison Bottle Release, Simulcask Firkins


Blind Bat Brewery and Long Ireland Beer Company bottle-release Spring 2012 Collaboration Saison, a 6.60% ABV saison created for Long Island Craft Beer Week 2012, during Simulcask on May 14 (8:00PM).

Brewed at Long Ireland Beer Company’s facility in Riverhead on March 30, Spring 2012 Collaboration Saison contains three hop varieties (Hallertau Mittelfruh, Saaz, and Sterling), and, according to Paul Dlugokencky, owner and brewmaster of Blind Bat Brewery, a “generous dose of freshly ground coriander.”

It is the official beer of Long Island Craft Beer Week 2012.

Though 750ml bottle* is Spring 2012 Collaboration Saison’s primary format, four casks will pour during Simulcask, a simultaneous cask-tap to celebrate the launch of Long Island Craft Beer Week 2012.

Bottles will be available following each cask-tap.
