Taproom is closed for the season.
Hours will be posted again by March 1st.
Maple Brown Ale
Abe’s Ale is our maple syrup brown ale. It throws a wrench in the works of the bland brown ale with it’s high A.B.V, which serves to balance and almost disappear the sweet from the maple syrup.
big ole' stout
Big Ole' Stout is for the fuller-bodied beer drinker. It's meant to keep you warm on a chilly night or take the burrs off an otherwise burly farmhand.
India Pale Ale
A perfect accompaniment to the game and the grind. This GOOD FOOD Award IPA formula is plowed with Galaxy and Citra hops, giving it a chock full of citrus and stone fruit flavors.
The beer that will set you free…our Session Lager is an easy drinking, smooth lager that has caramel flavors that make it great to drink with a nice meal, or even cook with. Reach for this lager on those long summer days.
Hefeweizen Wheat Beer
This hefeweizen-style wheat is great for quenching a thirst in the heat. The natural notes of banana and clove ensure every quaff is smooth and refreshing.
We also brew some stuff that you'd want to put on yer kitchen table during the holidays. Many of the ingredients in these beers were sourced within a few miles of our farm, if not directly on-site.
Gluten-Free Apple Ale
Our neighbors next door, Jefferies Orchard, have an apple orchard with several heirloom varieties, some dating back a century or more. Their apple cider is a fall staple for many folks around our parts. We decided to blend it with a batch made with gluten-free grains for another hyper-local offering that redefines the everyday apple ale. Without added sugars or flavorings, it's a whole new take on the ability to let ingredients speak for themselves.
blackberry coriander ale
Fruit & Spice Blonde Ale
Blackberries have to be hand-harvested; it's a labor of love. We pulled these blackberries from a local farmer and after squeezing them in a hand press, we added our own organically grown coriander. The fresh blackberry juice is present but not overpowering to allow the coriander and hops to emerge on the tongue. Many wine drinkers have expressed a fondness for this beer.
Hefeweizen with Blood Oranges
The way we reckon, there's not much worth doing that's easy. We search far and wide every year to procure 400 lbs. of blood oranges while they're at their peak and add it to an already delicious summery wheat beer.
blueberry thyme lager
Fruit & Spice Lager
Smooth, subtle, and our hyper-locally-sourced take on a fruited brew. Made with hand-pressed blueberries from the farm next door (Jefferies Orchard) and handpicked thyme from our own organic garden. We let each ingredient speak for itself in this beer without added sweetening.
Witbier with Sour Cherries
We only make this brew on years when the local cherry harvest is good! Using cherries from Jefferies Orchard, this brew is another hyper-local offering that allows each part to contribute to the overall experience.
Ale with Coffee
We took a classic brown ale base and added cold press Custom Cup Coffee, which is a small-batch coffee roaster just 7 miles down the road. The blend has a perfect balance of the two types of brews. Everyone needs a Coffee Break!
Raspberry truffle porter
Porter with Raspberries and Truffles
A toasty porter aged on cocao nibs and raspberries. A big raspberry forward aroma with a sweet chocolatey finish.
Blonde Ale with Strawberries and Basil
Handpicked local strawberries. Our own organically grown basil. Great for warmer weather, this beer is a great combination on the tongue of two ingredients some might not normally pair together.
