Default Are you a farmhouse brewer?

Anyone else live on a farm or in a farmhouse and brew mostly saisons?

No...but I am reading Farmhouse Ales right now! Really enjoying the book. Definetly want to brew up a Biere de garde...it seems like an extremely unappreciated style.

Local place (White Bluffs Brewing) does an awesome Bier de Garde, first time I had it was at their brewery and haven't seen many commercial examples of it available to sample.

No farmhouse myself so I guess I can't qualify but I live in a suburb that is growing into farmland so right behind my house is an animal hospital with a farm attached to it. I have cows and horses right behind me and a barn on the other side of my fence. Does that count? I use my detached garage to heat up my saisons during the summer. It's like a barn for cars. Does that count?

I do brew some saisons and love lots of saisons. I'd brew more or experiment with more "farmhouse" versions of other beers but there's lots of other stuff I like to brew but I don't drink through my beer fast enough to brew everything I love. I have a long, long list of beers I want to brew that I never get through. Every time I think the list is done and I'll start perfecting recipes I find a new technique or twist on a style to try. However, I do a lot of research on farmhouse style beers so I'd be happy to fill in on some information.

Thinking more along the lines of a direct involvement in agriculture, a giant freaking 150 year old house with a name and generations of family history, or both. The whole 'farmhouse' label cracks me up, although I tend to use it interchangeably with 'saison'. Doesn't irk me quite like 'belgian'.

I'm always disappointed when I try a commercial Saison and it tastes like a regular Wit.

This is not relevant to the OP.

Have a 15 gallon syrah barrel fermenting with Roeselare blend that I'm gonna keep going for the next couple years, does that count?

I live on a small farm in a farmhouse built in 1901. I malt my own wheat and think I'll try barley next. I do make a wide variety of beer styles. Think I might put in a couple hop plants next year too. I love country life.
