Tea-Loc is a Black Tea Saison, brewed in collaboration with our fellow Tucson brewers at Ten Fifty Five. The majority of the grist is made up of a blend of French Pilsner and Pale malt, with a smidge of flaked barley, honey malt, and Vienna malt for good measure. US Goldings hops provide a balancing bitterness; while locally harvested Meyer lemon and South Indian Black Tea (from Maya Tea Co) lend a brightness and body. It is fermented with a classic French Saison yeast.
Tea-loc is light and refreshing, and pairs well with herbed chevre, toasty baguette and aoil, or lemon sorbet.
