The Beers of Spring: Eight Dallas Brews to Drink Right Now [D Magazine]

D Magazine named Jalapeno Saison one of the beers to drink this spring

“We’ve emerged from winter beer weather, but we’re not quite ready for a steady summer diet of light thirst-quenchers. Spring is one of my favorite beer seasons, a time for saisons, porters, and clean flavors, a time when every night calls for a different brew.”

“Here’s what I’ll be drinking for the next few months.”

C’est la saison d’une saison: Saisons from On Rotation, Vector Brewing, Four Corners Brewing Company, and Oxbow Brewing

“Dallas is not historically a saison hub, but our drought might be over. The standout local example, On Rotation’s terrific Jalapeño Saison, embraces that historic trend of adding eclectic ingredients. Jalapeño registers mostly as a vegetal taste, not a spicy one. It’s a clear, golden, crispy beer with a backbone of pepper flavor and maybe the tiniest murmur of heat. The folks at On Rotation tell me that they just sold out, but have another batch fermenting now that they expect to arrive in late April.”

Jalapeño Saison is available on tap from late April at On Rotation, 7701 Lemmon Ave., Ste. 200.
