To my knowledge, this is a unique idea: Iron Hill West Chester will be hosting a 'season your own saison' contest among their employees. Each group (I assume there's one from each of the eight Iron Hills) gets five gallons of saison to fiddle with: add spices, herbs, fruit, vegetables, brewing bugs, gunpowder, whatever. Then they are all presented on Thursday August 20 at the brewpub, and for five bucks you get to taste each one and vote for your fave. The favorite will be brewed in full-size batches at the brewpubs.
Maybe not as much fun as brewing it yourself, but a lot easier. A lot being done with saison-style beers lately, and that's a good thing.
