A Message from our Beermonger, Ezra

GGM's Beer of the Month for December:

This American take on the Belgian-style Saison or farmhouse is uniquely darker and well suited for the holiday season. LSDF for short, La Saison des Fêtes literally means the season of parties in French, and for Glen’s Garden Market there ain’t no party like a #LocallySourced party! Atlas Brew Works slings us their suds from exactly a 4.0 mile drive east by Mt. Olivet and the Arboretum.

Atlas Head Brewer Will Durgin aimed to balance spicy French hops, aromatic European malt, and a unique Belgian yeast strain. The hops are not overly forward yielding a beer with 22 International Bitterness Units (IBUs) and allow the Belgian character to shine through. At 7.1% ABV LSDF is the perfect winter welcome to your own personal farmhouse. Grab a growler and settle in by the fire.

In fact, this is the second year of this beer and after the reception last year, we are quite happy to feature it more prominently for an entire month. For those of you who visited GGM during DC Beer Week, specifically for our "Most Local" Tap Takeover event, you may remember the stronger aged version of LSDF, The Town & Country, which took an already great beer and added additional complexity and tannins using Cabernet/Merlot Barrels sourced from a Virginia Winery.

So be sure to come on in and escape the winter weather for a $4 draft or $17.99 growler fill, and let this one of a kind beer warm you from the inside out!
