Following on the heels of our Small Batch No. 1
release in May, we’re continuing our limited
edition, seasonal bottle series with Small Batch
No. 2. Each Small Batch release is a completely
different recipe designed to be unique, interesting,
and often experimental. Small Batch No. 2 is a
delicious take on a style perfect for Texas
summers, and it’s available both in bottles and on
draft. But remember, there are only a few kegs
and about 7,000 bottles for all 27 million Texans,
so go grab your bottles before they are gone!
Small Batch Series No. 2 is a Texas Farmhouse
Ale that comes in at 7.7% ABV. The Wallonian-
style saison was brewed with spelt malt that has
been smoked over 4 Texas fruit woods as a small
portion of the grain bill (about 5%). The use of
peach, apricot, apple and plum woods add a
subtle smokiness and light fruit texture to the
earthy-sweet spelt, and marries well with the
complexities of the Belgian farmhouse yeast.
Earthy, peppery spice, herbal notes, soft ripe
fruitiness and light smoke phenols come from
fermenting at high temperatures and create a
deep, refreshing character. Highly attenuated for
a quenching dryness, this traditional saison is an
esoteric seasonal that’s made for the Texas
Texas Farmhouse Ale

Limited Edition, Collector’s Item
We’ll only brew one batch of each Small Batch
Series release. As a result, we’ll only release a
VERY limited number of bottles, and once they
are gone they will be gone for good. Be sure to
grab a couple of bottles so you can drink one and
save the others to add to your collection.
Baby Belgian Bottles
We are one of the first breweries to use the
unique, 375 ml bottles that we put our Small
Batch Series beer in. The bottles were
commissioned by Russian River, and as far as we
know we are the 2nd brewery after them to use
the bottles! They are the baby brother version of
the 750 ml bottle that we use for La Bestia, a cool,
unique, baby Belgian bottle!
Wax on, Wax Off
The bottles are wax dipped to protect them from
the elements during cellaring. We even changed
the wax, so the Small Batch No. 2 wax is now
new, improved, and odor free!
Also Available on Draft!
Small Batch No. 2 was too delicious and
refreshing to have in bottles only, so we also
released it on draft! Look for it at the select Texas
craft beer retailers listed in the right column of this
email, This will be the only Small Batch release
this year that will be available on draft, so enjoy it
while you can!
