Saison is a Belgian style of beer that was originally developed to refresh farm hands during the late summer harvests. Today it is just a darn tasty beer that can be enjoyed anytime. Look for great brews like Saison DuPont from Belgium, Saison du Swamp from Swamp Head Brewing in Gainesville, Dragonglass Black Saison from Intuition Ale Works locally in Jacksonville, and the elusive Cucumber Saison from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa.
Last year, on I Know Jax, we aired a segment on Saisons. We thought it would be fitting to the start of summer to give you the opportunity to watch it again. Please remember to tune in to CW17 on Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. (if not pre-empted by Sharks football) and 12:00 midnight for new episodes and new Beer Guy segments!
