The farmhouse style ale was brewed with raspberry, saison yeast and Belgian pilsener and wheat malts. It’s mildly tart and effervescent with hints of lemon and pepper.

“Shot him off in a rocket where no man would go!” – John Prine
Michael Fegley (brother of owners Jeff and Rich Fegley) and Brewmaster Beau Baden collaborated on the name “Space Monkey” – both being fans of American country/folk artist John Prine and wanting to keep the monkey surname after brewing and bottling “Monkey Wrench Saison”.
John Prine wrote the song titled “Space Monkey” about 25 years ago and Mike and Beau thought it would be a great fit. Mike contacted John Prine’s camp when he heard that John was coming to Reading, PA in September 2010. With Space Monkey Raspberry Saison bottles to offer as a gift, and backstage passes in hand, Mike and Beau were excited to meet with the singer-songwriter that inspired the name of their beer.
