Good news folks!
Spring is finally here and we are only two weeks away from re-opening the brewery’s doors to the public. On Saturday, April 8 from 12 – 4 pm the brewery will have it’s first retail day and beer release of the year. Last June, we opened the brewery with a very narrow scope of operation – welcoming people to the farm and brewery, offering tours and selling bottles of our small batch beers to go. No growlers or on site consumption; tastings or otherwise. Throughout the year the number one question we received was whether that would eventually change. And we are extremely happy to announce, later this summer, it will.
Before it became our home and brewery, a family operated a small dairy farm on this property. When we first came to look at the property, the immediate vision was to convert the old dairy barn into our brewery. Unfortunately modern equipment requirements (and code) made it too costly to renovate and impractical to operate. The vision however, has never faded. While the old dairy barn may not be the place for steam boilers, glycol systems and the like it is a perfect fit for a barrel aging facility and modest tasting room.
One of the most satisfying experiences of living and working here is the ability to sit outside as the sun beams down on you and enjoy one the fruits of our labor with friends and family. This summer we will finally be able to share that experience with you. We will announce more of the plan and be sharing pictures of our progress as we get closer to the barn’s grand opening.
Until then, we will be opening as we did last year every Saturday from 12 – 4pm with farm tours at 11:30 am and 2 pm. For this first weekend we will be releasing the second batch of Second Nature, our farmhouse ale aged in wine barrels with cherries; as well as filling growlers of our freshest hoppy beers.
Here is the full list of what will be available for our opening day on April 8, 2017.
