Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, Michigan) has officially announced the limited release of Bath-o-Mat & Washeteria, an inventive Sour Saison brewed in collaboration with Tired Hands Brewing Company (Ardmore, Pennsylvania).
Just as you would expect from any collaboration beer shaped by the minds at Jolly Pumpkin and Tired Hands, creativity abounds in Bath-o-Mat & Washeteria as its recipe starts with a “base of Pilsner malt, Crystal 30, Teff, Almonds, and Couscous.” Hopped with Hallertau and Tettnang hops, this Sour Saison then sees “additions of saffron and lemon [to bring] aromas of Jolly Pumpkin funk, spicy oak and lemon in the nose.” The Bath-o-Mat & Washeteria (6.4% ABV) experience closes with “flavors of light oak funk and lemon [that pair] well with the slight spiciness and noble hop profile.”
Bath-o-Mat & Washeteria is rolling out now and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 750ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Jolly Pumpkin’s distribution area. Prost!

Fun Fact – On the beer’s name: “So how did we come up with the name? Well…When it came time to name this beer [Jean Broillet of Tired Hands] wanted to call it Alien Baphomet, which was too scary for us. Instead, we chose Bath-o-Mat & Washeteria, which is close enough and possibly equally scary! Inspired by a stay across the street from our dear friend Polly’s Washeteria, Prytania Washateria, located in the hauntingly beautiful city of New Orleans.”
