WASHINGTON - There are microbrewers and macro brewers, but have you and your taste buds ever run into a "gypsy brewer?"
If not, you might soon after watching Greg Engert, beer director for the Neighborhood Restaurant Group -- and a Food and Wine Sommelier of the Year -- introduce WTOP's Brennan Haselton to Stateside Saison from Stillwater Artisanal Ales.
Named a "Top New Brewer In The World 2011" by RateBeer, the unconventional maker of Stateside Saison brings together a northern French farmhouse ale yeast with American and New Zealand hops to create a unique, highly drinkable beer.
Stateside Saison is the second of four local beers to be featured this month on WTOP's Beer of the Week.
