Flix Brewhouse Announces Walt Powell Signature Series

10374015_10202706560800048_3313562614818566239_nIt’s been nearly a year since Flix Brewhouse VP of Operations and all-around craft beer advocate Walt Powell’s life was cut tragically short.

A testament to his impact, Walt has since been memorialized with namesake beers from The Bruery and, of course, Flix Brewhouse.

Flix’s Saison De Walt was released shortly after Walt’s passing last June, and has remained a popular fixture on Flix’s tapwall ever since.

Now, to honor the one year anniversary of Walt’s death, Flix Brewer Justin Rizza and co. will launch the “Walt Powell Signature Series,” seven kegs of Saison de Walt with their own unique additives.

Beginning June 4, Flix will tap Saison de Walt aged on toasted French Oak. The other kegs listed below will follow in succession as the one proceeding it runs out. As a new keg taps it will be updated on Flix’s Taplister page.

Here’s the lineup:

Saison Oak- Toasted French Oak aged
Saison Herb- Fresh Thyme, Tarragon and Sage
Saison Sorachi- Dry hopped with Sorachi Ace
Saison Chinookarillo- Dry hopped with Chinook/Amarillo
Saison Plum- Fresh Plums
Saison Berry- Blackberries/Raspberries
Saison Sour- well…soured

A portion of the proceeds from the Walt Powell Signature Series will go toward the Walt Powell Memorial Scholarship Fund, which was set up by Walt’s family to fund a two week Brewing and Malting Science Course at the University of Wisconsin through the Master Brewers Association of the Americas.
