Staff Pick

The brewers at Crooked Fence Brewing took on an interesting challenge this spring, when they visited the Boise International Market with the goal of creating a beer based on the flavors of the ethnic market. They passed around bags of spices with names they couldn't pronounce, sticking their noses inside and trying to imagine a beer with such flavor. At last, they settled on a fruity herb called basobla from the East African nation of Eritrea. With it, they created the World Village Saison. It has a fruity flavor and aroma, which made for a delightful and light saison. It debuted at the World Village Festival in Capitol Park in late June and lasted only a couple of weeks on the shelves of select grocery stores around town.
