Left Coast brings saison beer from San Francisco to UK


Pine Street Brewery

A saison beer from San Francisco’s Pine Street Brewery has been introduced to the UK through importer Left Coast Distribution.

The naturally unfiltered Menagerie, at 5% ABV, offers a light, citrusy aroma and is refreshing on the palate with a medium-to-light body and medium carbonation. It initially is available in 330ml cans.

It has become the 35th beer to join the growing US cast of UK importer Left Coast Distribution which also imports beers from Californian brewers such as Heretic, North Coast, Ruhstaller and Uncommon.

Left Coast Distribution founder Nigel Garlick said: “Pine Street’s Menagerie is a fine example of a refreshing saison with light spicy tones. The San Franciscan brewery’s first beer to reach our shores is available in cans only but expect it over here in kegs in the new year.”

Saison beer, originating from Belgium, is a refreshing style of pale ale, normally with fruity notes and some carbonation.
