Perhaps the most devastating weather driven event in American history, the drought of the 1920's and 1930's significantly impacted Minnesota's economic, social, and natural landscapes. Abnormally dry and hot growing season weather throughout the better part of two decades turned Minnesota farm fields to dust and small lakes into muddy ponds. The parched soil was easily taken up by strong winds, often turning day into night.
Brewing a Summer Saison. Traditionally these beers were brewed for consumption by Belgian farm workers during the hot summer months. Fast forward to modern day and saisons have become so popular that they are brewed year round. There are now even seasonal variations, with spring, summer, autumn, and winter versions.
