Logsdon Farmhouse Ales was founded in 2009 in Hood River, Oregon on a true farm in the picturesque Columbia River Gorge. David Logsdon and Charles Porter partnered on the brewery and their first batches rolled out in 2011. Brewers and homebrewers will know of another company Logsdon founded - Wyeast Laboratories. The story from 2009 - 2020 for Logsdon has a lot of turns and detours. But with a new brewery in Washougal, Washington they continue brewing delicious saisons, Brett beers, sour ales, fruit beers, and lagers.
Head brewer Shilpi Halemane and co-owner John Plutshack joined us this week to share some of their story. We talk about the mighty saison, what makes a good one, and the difference in a saison and grisette. There's more love for Brett beers all around, coolship chatter, and we also discuss some malting science.
There's not as much love from the beer community for saisons as there was a few years ago. But, whether they're trendy or not, we still love 'em - and Logsdon makes that easy.
