I Think They Named it After Me

Though I was not involved in Stone's most recent collaboration, I know they had me in mind when naming their latest brewery three-way: Saison du BUFF. Because when you think of buff, you think of me, with the biceps and pecs and delts and lats and the sit-ups and the Cheez-Itz. So thanks, guys. And thanks to Victory Brewing, who along with Dogfish Head are the fellow concoctors with Stone in this recipe. Victory, out of Downington, PA, is one of those frustrating breweries that makes great beers that are available all around us but not to us. Gotta make the trip to CO or TX for your closest taste of Prima Pils or Hop Wallop. But we are getting this beer, a 6.8% ABV Saison brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. And to think, I just had a V-8 when I coulda had this. The beer has an intial hop-forwardness that flows into a black licorice taste. And I got parsley stuck in my teeth. A lot going on in this beer. Can't get a good picture without going into roid rage, but the beer is good stuff.
