Halcyon Barrel House expands distribution of Curse of Knowledge, an organic farmhouse saison

Halcyon Barrel House has bottled Curse of Knowledge, its organic farmhouse saison, for wider distribution in Ontario and Québec.

It’s almost magically both effortlessly drinkable, and assumingly complex. Previously available on draft and from the brewery only, it will now be available in 500 ml bottles at retailers in Ontario and Québec.
