|SShh…I stole this from Jason’s Twitter page|
I just wanted to point you all in the direction of Jason Yester of Trinity Brewing. Just recently he opened up a Twitter account at @Saison_Man. I’ve been following him and he makes a really nice supplement to the regular Trinity Twitter account by telling us what’s going on in the Brewery, what some of his interests are, and what sort of things he’s dreaming up for Trinity. I recently noticed that he’s been making some podcasts. Maybe I’m just a super beer nerd, but I think the podcast is a nice listen. In this podcast he and a group of people are tasting their Pappy Legba, a sour cherry saison, and then in this one they are comparing the draft version and the bottled version, tasting other sours, all the while talking about the various characteristics of sour beers. But guess what, Jason’s also recently started his own video channel as well! Now you can watch some of the excursions the Trinity folk go on.
Jason’s Twitter page is also where I first heard about the upcoming Buddha Nuvo Saison, a collaborative beer between Trinity, Rockyard, Black Fox, Crooked Stave, AC Golden/Coors, Funkwerks, Strange Brewing, and Ska Brewing. That’s quite a list! They’re brewing up the beer later this week. This beer will have a number of different malt varieties and multiple strains of Brettanomyces yeasts as well as a special appearance of the citrusy fruit Buddha’s Hand. I’m going to let you watch the video where Jason talks about how the Buddha Nuvo project came about, and he gives you all the details of ingredients of what will be in the beer. I’m also posting the video below:

If you’ve ever wondered what Twitter is good for, now you have an idea. Jason has really begun to make full use of various social platforms to add a lot of great content to what’s happening at Trinity. I’m glad he’s got his own profile so that Trinity can stick with the normal updates without sending out too much information.
