Pellets, Propane, Plastic, No Problem! December 10th was crazy fun and cozy in the brew barn.

We are open for the three more Saturdays of 2016, then reopen in April 2017. Stay tuned for winter Crowler availability here and there, And THANK YOU!

A special thank you to our young customer Michael who came along for the ride and animal fun here and created an amazing drawing for the Billy Board. We love it.

There’s nothing like warming up by a fire with a tropical stout: December 10th introducing Black Pearl.

This special style of stout that is popular in Jamaica starts with a chocolate flavor enhanced by a citrus taste from the hops and then a slightly bitter finish. Perfect alone or with a slice of rum cake… or a little rum.

In the Saturday, December 10th lineup: The last batch of our Porcelain Doll heirloom pumpkin holiday season saison until next autumn.

Talky Tina is one of brewery owner Sheila’s personal favorites, with the fresh-cut and roasted pumpkin. With a heavy heart and a personal stash for Christmas in the frig, we say CHEERS until next year to this one.talky-tina-stuff

From Oskar Blues:

 

“A CROWLER (CAN +growler) is a 32-ounce CAN filled with fresh craft beer from the source. Yep, draft beer in a portable growler –sized CAN. It’s obb-nolocation-1the newest innovation coming from the Oskar Blues Brewery taproom and their development partner Ball Corporation, the pioneers of the American craft brew in-a-CAN movement.

As always, CANs, even big ones, are more portable and less breakable than glass, making the CROWLER a natural partner for your next beer soaked outdoor experience.”

Many thanks to Bruce Williams for our label design.

FOC Crowlers coming soon to a farm market and possibly package store near you. We close our tasting room for the winter but we are not going away.

This is the first of three beers in the Courageous Cat Trilogy. This is refreshing, hop forwarded with the citrus and tropical flavors of Citra hops.

The Frog   8.4% Double IPA

As the third in the Courageous Cat trilogy, The Frog is a very flavor-and-bitterness-balanced IPA that continues through to the finish with the Mosaic hops.

Tequila Sheila  jalapeno and cherry pepper cream ale LIMITED AMOUNT

This is our hot and slightly different flavored version of Jalapeno Jack. The tequila and cherry pepper flavors are a subtle change but the heat level is definitely not a dainty difference.

Courageous Cat   double IPA

Ultimate 57  imperial IPA

This imperial IPA is hop-heavy with six different hops, with the citrus flavor of Simcoe up front without the typical IPA bitterness.
