BOTW–Jack D’Or


Pretty Things Jack D’Or

Inspired by some of our favorites saisons like Saison DuPont, but also DeRanke’s XX Bitter, De Dolle’s Arabier, and local table IPAs like Smuttynose, our Jack D’Or starts off with North American Pils, Vienna, Wheat and Malted Oats (among others) and is hopped with a combination of four hops, finishing with Palisade and Nugget. The bitterness is the real backbone of the Jack D’Or. It’s a proper plant-like bitterness with all of its jagged edges, beginning deep in the soil, then to the stem of this beer and up into to the very tippity heights.

Definitely, as they describe it, a “Table Beer”, it went well with cheese and proved a satisfying aperitif.

Miso Glazed Black Sea Bass, Quinoa Pilaf, Braised Russian Kale and Merry Edwards 2008 Olivet Lane Pinot Noir. I even garnished the fish this time, with scallions and black sesame seeds, how about that?
