This beer was a collaboration between Dogfish Head, Stone, and Victory brewing companies back in 2010. I thought it was a one-time-only brew, but I guess they're bringing it back this year. It's literally brewed with herbs - parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (isn't that from a Simon & Garfunkel song?). I'd like to try the other two versions, although supposedly each brewery made the exact same recipe.

BREWERY'S DESCRIPTION & INFORMATION: This beer is collaboration between Dogfish Head, Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA), and Victory Brewing Company (Downington, PA). The idea for this beer germinated way back in 2003 when the three guys (Sam from Dogfish, Greg from Stone and Bill from Victory) formed the BUFF alliance (Brewers United for Freedom of Flavor) - a noble endeavor with the goal to highlight the passion and camaraderie of the American craft brew movement. So, BUFF didn't really do anything (beyond talk a lot of talk) until 2010 when the three brewers finally got together to jointly brew at beer at the Stone Brewery. Saison du BUFF was first brewed at Stone and then replicated at each of the other two breweries - same recipe, same ingredients, three different breweries throughout 2010. The brewers have a repeat performance planned for 2012! Saison du BUFF is a 6.8% alc/vol Saison brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. The beer is brewed three times, once at each brewery using the same recipe. The expected release dates for each brew are as follows: Dogfish Head - March 2012 release Victory Brewing - April 2012 release Stone Brewing Co.- Late May 2012 release
