Location

Throwback Brewery

Hard to believe it’s been eight years since we opened our warehouse doors – and four of those here on the farm! To celebrate, we’re throwing our 8th Birthday Bash here on Sunday, July 7th, from 12-4pm. Chef is preparing a pig roast special menu (think bbq sandwiches and plates and all the fixins’). Our brewers will release four celebratory beers just for the day, and we’ll have live music out in the beer garden! Please note the shorter hours that day – 12-4pm – so our staff can get in on the party and celebrate, too.

Our Birthday Beers:

Every July we like to celebrate another year by releasing four specials beers that we can’t wait to share with you (and to drink ourselves)! Here is what we will be releasing on July 7th:

  • Strawberry Rhubarb Blonde – We are still putting the final touches on this light summer sipper, but you can expect it to be highly refreshing with just the right balance of strawberry sweetness to rhubarb tart!
  • Watta Melon Blonde Ale – As per tradition, we are once again releasing one of our most popular beers on our birthday. Watta Melon Blonde is made with fresh watermelon and is the epitome of summer fun and picnics with friends & family. Come on by and give it a try as it never lasts too long!
  • Dry Hopped Love Me Long Time Pilsener on Cask – For those of you looking for something on the hoppy side, we are doing a special cask of our pilsener dry hopped with experimental hops (X07270 hop: spicy, resinous, and tangerine, X06297 hop: orange, vanilla, tropical, and Rakau: ripe fruit, grapefruit, tropical). Should be perfect for those looking for a beer with a serious kick of hoppy fruity flavors & aromas.
  • Maple Bourbon Barrel-Fermented Hopstruck Red IPA (July 2019 version) – Over the past few years, we’ve had a lot of luck in fermenting and aging our Hopstruck Red IPA in a Maple Bourbon Barrel, so we’ve done it again! This July 2019 version is akin to a hoppy, sweet southern tea – perfect for BBQ! When you take a sip, you’ll get a nice hit of sweet from the caramel malt & maple syrup, balanced by prominent tea notes from the hops, finishing dry with flavors of oak & a touch of alcohol warmth.

From 2-4pm, brewery favorites The George Brown Duo will be here, rocking our beer garden stage (weather permitting). Influenced by Ben Harper, Ryan Adams, PHISH, The Band, and Grateful Dead, long time friends and musical collaborators George Brown and Bryan Litchfield bring a wealth of musical and performance experience to every gig as The George Brown Duo. With a mix of original material that spans a range of styles from Americana to funk, George’s music is sure to entertain even the most discernible listeners. We can’t wait to have them join the party!

In the past, we’ve hosted our birthday as a ticketed event. This year we’re operating like any typical day here – no tickets required, and our food menu will be la carte, except it will be filled with delicious bbq specialties! And yes, we’ll be sure to have amazing vegetarian options too! So get on over here and raise a glass with us on July 7th. It’s great to be 8!!! Cheers!
