Brewer's Notes: This beer was the first of our Brewer's Session Series at the pub and was originally released as Brewers Session I.  The idea behind Brewer's Session was to have a light, accessible session beer to fill in spots in the lineup there.  In this case, at the time of the original release we had a lot of dark beers on the menu, and nothing bright and quenching.  I made this beer with the idea of a Patersbier and while I missed the mark with a little too much alcohol, it's a super-tasty beer, and was incredibly popular. It has the rich maltiness of traditional Pilsner malt and a nice floral/spicy noble hoppiness, all over a crisp dry body and the unmistakable ester profile of Trappist Abbey yeast.

 

When we approached the idea of the Birthday 4-Pack it seemed like a no-brainer to pull this one back out as the Singel.

 

This beer is named after Sancho Panza from Don Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote.
