Organic Green tomato saison
This unusual beer, made with our summer glut of green tomatoes, is fresh, fizzy and aromatic – a deserving Gold award winner at the Taste of the West
Winner of 'Best of Beer and Cider' in the 2019 Soil Association BOOM Awards / Gold at the 2018/2019 Taste of the West Awards.
In summer, we often end up with a glut of green tomatoes. We jokingly asked Barnaby and his team if they could use any in a brew… And to our surprise, they took us up on it! The result is this beautifully fresh, fizzy, aromatic and spicy saison (a Belgian farmhouse style of beer), with a hint of sourness and slight wine-like quality from the tomatoes. Drink on its own, or with food – it seems to go with just about everything.
Barnaby’s Brewhouse is based on the Riverford dairy farm in South Devon. The team are passionate about producing outstanding craft beers as sustainably as possible, recently winning the 2019 South West Environmental Sustainability Award. They use organic malt and hops sourced in the UK, and water from a natural spring in the middle of our own organic farmland. Their bespoke brewhouse was built using innovatively adapted, reclaimed equipment. Barnaby’s don’t use any animal products to fine their beers, as they are conditioned over time and then cold filtered. The result is excellent beers and lagers that everyone can enjoy.
