Even though I've been off the grids and the blog scene, it doesn't mean I haven't been drinking! This week I decided to pull out another NC local like last week. Big Boss Brewing is a pretty cool brewery in Raleigh. They have awesome events in the brewery, and you'll likely spot a food truck or two out there. If I ever recover from my injury, I like to join the run club that is hosted at the brewery as well.
Based on my love for farmhouse ales, I picked up this saison at Bottle Revolution back before I started Whole 30. Saison is kind of a "proper" name for a farmhouse ale. This type of beer can be loosely described as a pale ale that's more carbonated. As for Big Boss' Saucey Pants, it's only 4.5% alcohol and definitely easy to drink. The brew has that dry, "farmhouse funk" to it with the hop bitterness definitely coming through. Unfortunately, I was left hoping for a little something more. The beer just felt...mediocre.
Nonetheless, I would totally recommend visiting Big Boss if you're ever in the Raleigh area! It's an awesome spot. Some of my other favorite beers from them include Big Operator, Aces & Ates, and Harvest Time.
