Farm Brewed Beers

Updated daily, however subject to change without notice here given our small batches.  Growlers and Crowlers available for most beers, ask in the taproom for availability and pricing.

“Bloody Butcher" Local Lager - One of our favorite projects: a beer brewed with 50% malted corn, grown for seed here at the farm for planting in quantity down the road with the Messick Family. This drinkable lager is a great mix of light and crisp with a subtle corn-derived creamy mouthfeel. Bloody Butcher corn is an open pollinated heritage variety traditionally grown in Appalachia where seed savers have preserved this variety for centuries. 4.6% ABV

“Lemongrass” Pils -- A soft malt bill steeped with dried farm-grown lemongrass during the boil, bringing out the grass’s lemony aroma and floral taste that works well with that typical, faint sulfur yeast character present in pilsners.  Crisp & dry.  5.1% ABV


“Hibiscus” Blonde Ale – A crisp clean blonde ale with hibiscus flowers added after fermentation. Local hibiscus
flowers from Sharkawi Farm in New Baltimore. A nice, drinkable ale with a beautiful pink color plus a floral
background and nice tart finish from the flowers. 5.3% ABV

“Viking” Aronia Ale - Earthy, floral and dry. This light bodied ale is brewed with juice from Viking Aronia Berries grown here on the farm. Also known as black chokeberries, they are highly nutritious and often called sour berries, denoting the astringent fruit that has been used to make tasty jams, jellies, pies and juice.  5%  ABV

“Lavender” Grisette – This saison-like beer has its roots in France as a quenching drink for miners, ours has a much more agricultural slant, mashed with a hefty amount of wheat to add body to an otherwise clean malt bill.  Brewed with our farm-grown lavender which adds cherry notes that complement the esters from our favorite French saison yeast, fermented warm.  5.1% ABV


“Mirabelle” Belgian Table Beer – Brewed with ginger grown here on the farm and refermented with local golden plums from Fauquier County, giving this Virginian table beer a refreshing upfront ginger flavor and a sweet tart plum finish. Table Beers were popular in France and Belgium in the early 1900s because of their combo of flavor and drinkability.   5.3% ABV

“Bramble” Blackberry Saison – We fermented this one warm with our French Saison yeast and then refermented it cold on whole berry, organically grown blackberries from our neighbor across the field.  Crisp with a clean saison flavor, and a great blackberry accent with both tart & fruity notes. 5.4% ABV

Wine-Barrel Aged “Farmhouse” Saison – With earthy-sweet, honey-like aromas, this farmhouse saison has brettanomyces notes as well as a malt profile from the Virginia-grown wheat and biscuit malt.  Fermented with a robust Virginia-native farmhouse yeast giving it a rich estery profile. This Saison has been aged for 9 months in barrels. 5.8% ABV

Barrel-Aged “The Achilles” Yarrow Porter - This historical recipe features our farm-grown yarrow, which adding a
slight licorice undertone to an oat porter, adding a roasty finish. The Latin of yarrow Achillea millefolium, or "the
thousand leaved plant of Achilles," a nod to the herb's famous healing & medicinal qualities (Achilles was said to
bring it with him to battle). It's also called "meadow hops" in Scandinavia, because of its very common use in beer
for hundreds of years, picked from the field instead of the hop-laden woods. Earthy. 7.4%ABV
