Solvay Society Brewing Release Bière de Garde

Post-Hoc Fallacy, a keg only special brewed in collaboration with McColl’s Brewing

The post-hoc fallacy states that because B comes after A, B must be a consequence of A. This is obviously not always the case but it can be tempting to buy into the causality.

This Bière de Garde is a non-causal one: it doesn’t follow on from what its name suggests and offers much more than classic Bière de Gardes.

This chestnut-coloured ale was brewed with a careful selection of American hops and fermented with two different yeasts before being lagered for 6 weeks. The result is an unexpectedly satisfying autumnal beer that blends notes of coconut, burnt sugar and honey with a unique floral aroma.

Bière de Garde, meaning ‘keeping beer’ in French, is a relatively nebulous style – much like its more popular cousin, the saison.

These beers tend to be more malt-forward than saisons and, as the name suggests, lagered for some period of time.
