Spent Grain Crackers

Saison 2 crackers are made from over 50% recycled malts called ‘’spent grains’’, the main ingredient in the beer process. Spent grains are made up of 20% proteins and 70% fibers, making them a very nutritious aliment.

 All products  are available in sticks or thin crackers! 

Newfoundland Sea Salt & Olive Oil Crackers

Product description : 

If a cracker could be elegant, this would be the one.

Our Newfoundland salt crackers are designed for those who love simple, well executed products that are made of simply the best ingredients on the market. This statement could be overlooked as pretentious. However, when you learn that our crackers are made up mostly of salt from the Newfoundland Salt Company, Quebec organic flour from Moulin Des Cèdres and spent grains (of course)…

It’s not pretentious, it’s common sense

Pairing tip :

To preserve the delicate flavors of light beers, it is recommended to consume products that have subtle tastes. Since salt is a widely known flavor enhancer, blonde beer’s aromas are put to the forefront by our crackers.

The caramelization of the malt found in red or Marzen style beers brings a great addition to the salt crystals, resulting in a delicious salty caramel taste. Another potential pairing would be chocolate-flavored porters that have a low amount of hops.

Balsam Fir & Garlic Crackers

Product description :

Our friend Michelle once said: ‘’Balsam fir, it tastes like Quebec’’ and after thinking about it, she is just right!

Our province is filled with delicious and underexploited aromas and balsam fir surely is part of this group. This is why we developed a cracker that puts emphasis on the distinctive herbal taste of balsam fir. This one is perfect for pairing with aged cheese and salads!

Pairing tip :

The bitterness of American IPAs (and all beers made up of american hops) resonates perfectly with the resinous character of fir.

Farmhouse-style beers, which have a drier, cereal body and a rounder and sweeter character of fir thorns also complement well with these flavors.

Fennel & Black Pepper Crackers

Product description :

An explosion of anise and peppery flavors emanates of these crackers. BONUS: They will pair wondrously your fish tartars!

Pairing tip :

White beers, which are usually citrusy or tangy when berries such as raspberries are involved, are a great pairing to the aniseed flavor of the fennel seeds in our cracker, amplifying the flavors of both products.

Saison-type beers, defined by their rustic and robust yeasts, resonate well with the spicy- peppery taste of the crackers.

Habanero Chilli & Paprika Crackers

Product description :

We did not forget you, spicy food lovers!

Our Habanero pepper and paprika crackers are based on Felicie’s boyfriend’s signature spicy sauce recipe. The secret to the gracious mix between spicy and sweet resides in the subtle addition of peaches to the recipe. An excellent product to keep you warm during the cold winter (wink wink).

Pairing tip :

The roasted malt used in conventional stouts with its coffee and black chocolate flavors creates an interesting contrast with the fiery side of the Habanero pepper. The thick sweet taste of the stout will help appease your tastebuds after you’ve bitten into one of our spicy crackers.

The pairings were written by Dave Spoerry, Cicerone Certified Beer Sommelier
