Farmhouse ales, aka saisons, were, back in the day, brewed with local-to-the-farm ingredients in, you guessed it, farmhouses. They were meant to slake a worker’s thirst during the warm summer months and, as such, many of these beers are low in ABV. Though most modern-day breweries aren’t located on farms, there has been a resurgence in this style of beer, which is often described as funky, fruity, and spicy. The following six beers are some of our current favorites.

Errday. That’s how often you’re going to want to drink this beer, a mixed-culture petit saison. With your eggs. On the weekend. At happy hour. It’s light (3.8 percent), crisp, refreshing, and not so potent that you can’t get back to work and finish out the rest of your day if you ‘accidentally’ have one or two with your lunch.
