Brew Review – Devour Brewing at Due South’s Trench Day 2015

While slinging beers at Due South for their recent Mariana Trench release event, I spent the time next to the fine people at Devour Brewing, a brewery in Boynton beach that will be opening their doors in the not-too-distant future. They’re quite nice, even though they had to explain when they were opening about 700 times that day. Judging from their offerings, I’m hoping it’ll be very soon.

Rye Saison by Devour Brewing

Rye Saison (Farmhouse Ale, 5.5% ABV, 27 IBU) – Chip Breighner, Devour’s owner and head brewer, was hanging out next to us all day and mentioned that he is a huge fan of saisons. This is pretty evident considering the high quality of this beer. It’s brewed using rye and Mosaic hops, and has a moderate hop fruitiness to it. There’s a touch of rye in the beer, but a sharp roughness (the hallmark of a good saison, in my opinion) rounded out with a citrusy lightness was more evident.

Lemongrass Ginger Pale Ale by Devour Brewing

Lemongrass Ginger Pale Ale (Pale Lager, 5.2% ABV, 36 IBU) – This beer was brewed using Zythos and Motueka hops. And ginger. There is no mistaking the ginger, which blends and enhances the hops quite well. Those hops return the enhancement favor as well. It makes for a slightly coarse mouthfeel, big, mature, savory flavor, and a slight citrus sweetness from the lemongrass.

I can’t wait to check out their tap room when they open. Maybe have a porter or two on tap for me?

Drink Florida Craft,
