Saison D'etre

Saison, say what?

All about the spirit of saison, the Belgian farmhouse style of beer that Vivant is built upon. We celebrate the fullness of the fields' provisions and a bountiful harvest, lush and fruit bearing. A time to appreciate those who put in the hard work tending the land, to recognize the artisans that turn the fruit of the vine, through the work of their hands, into something magical; something transcendent that deserves to be savoured and shared.
Expect intriguing cuisine from our scratch kitchen, inspiring saison ales, and the usual suspects: that cadre of bon vivants you identify with as YOUR people. After all, saison simply translates as season. And at Vivant, good food, drink and merriment are always in season. 


Our brewers have been hard at work crafting some amazing beers specially for this event. Adding to our Unapologetic Fruit series will be a brand new Sangria ale. Packed with scintillating flavors of white grape, apple, pear, blood orange, blueberry and blackberry, this Sangria is absolutely unapologetic. 
In addition we'll be releasing a new, uniquely brewed ale with rye and spelt that is quintessentially saison. Considering the theme of the weekend, we're calling this one Essential Saison. Always! 
Word has it that our brewers are concocting a third beer for Saison D'etre weekend; something wild, something Farm Hand, something barrel aged that'll be the latest of our Single Barrel Sour limited bottle releases to date! 
Beer can wraps
Three cans of Farm Hand Tart Tangerine in a pile of tangerines.

Friends, we're so excited to have finally released our first ever FARM HAND variant as a mainstay option for your drinking enjoyment! As you may know, FARM HAND is the first beer we brewed for the public over a decade ago and continues to be our flagship ale. Tart Tangerine is the evolution of this classic Vivant ale. 

FARM HAND Tart Tangerine is a characterful new variant with bold, in-your-face tangerine aroma and flavor. The tangy tangerine notes imbue the classic farmhouse flavors of Farm Hand making this, one lip-smacking good beer!

You can find Tart Tangerine in select stores throughout Michigan.
