A mixed fermentation Saison aged in oak barrels
Golden Door is a recipe inspired by old world saison tradition comprised of water, barley, oats, spelt, wheat, European hops, yeast, and bacteria.
"The name is derived from a George Washington Carver quote: “Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” A quote that is relevant because of the agricultural tradition of saison brewing, and because of the knowledge we’ve gained as a brewery over time which has allowed us to present this elegant and complex beer derived from simple means.
As saisons were made for farmers and fieldworkers, we wanted to honor a person who made a difference in the agricultural community, especially in Georgia,” says Wood Cellar and Specialty Brand Manager, Blake Tyers. “We take inspiration from the curious thinkers, inventors, artists, and explorers, and with saisons being so important to agriculture we picked out George Washington Carver and used a quote of his to name the beer.”
