LalBrew Farmhouse™ wins a Brassinov Competition Innovation Award during Salon du Brasseur in Nancy, France.

The objective of the Brassinov Competition presented by French Brewery Museum, was to award the most remarkable innovations presented at the show – Innovations that responded to the economic, societal and environmental challenges of the beer industry. Experts studied the various innovations before submitting them to a jury of professionals. Of the seventeen exhibitors entered, three were awarded. Awarded in the category of “Services et Process”, LalBrew Farmhouse™ is the result of the research and development work of Renaissance Bioscience Corp. (Vancouver BC, Canada) and Lallemand Brewing’s first collaborative release. The Renaissance team used classical and non-GMO science to breed a yeast without the STA1 gene, responsible for the diastatic activity of Saison yeasts. The result was a strain not able to metabolize dextrins but with all the other attribute characteristics of Saison yeast.  LalBrew Farmhouse™ represents a new addition to Lallemand Brewing’s portfolio of solutions to safely brew a wide variety of modern and attractive Saison and Farmhouse beer styles in a short period of time. Eliminating the risk of cross-contamination that comes with a diastatic yeast, care was taken to retain all characteristics that make Saison yeast so attractive: flavor, aroma profile and high attenuation.
