Misty Dawn Saison is one of those brews that has quite a history here at CMBC. It started off as Cape May Saison, and the name change came thanks to an updated recipe born from our very first homebrew Brew Crew contest.
It’s a tenured part of our roster here, and we’re always excited to bring it back on tap! If you haven’t heard of this one yet, here’s the details:
The Misty Dawn sails again! Named for Mop Man's 46-foot fishing boat that sank off the coast of Cape May, we've brought back our beloved Misty Dawn Saison from the bottom of the ocean. Brewed with New Jersey-grown and malted grain from our friends at Rabbit Hill, Misty Dawn uses their Farmhouse Pilsner and ample amounts of red wheat. Paired with an expressive Belgian yeast strain and hefty additions of Saaz and Hallertau Blanc, Misty Dawn Saison is an effervescent and unique beer with notes of grapefruit zest, earthiness, and a dry, spicy finish.
Did you know that Rabbit Hill also just won a gold medal from the Malt Cup competition this year for their Farmhouse Pilsner malt?! Check out the awesome picture on their instagram @rabbit_hill_malthouse.
