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. 5% 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. 5.2%
“Shade Tree” Norwegian Blonde Ale - Brewed with peach tree leaves from our farm to give this brew a refreshing sweet flavor. Fermented hot with a Norwegian farmhouse yeast known for its subtle mango, guava and pineapple esters. Light and crisp. 5.2% 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
“The Greenway Extension” Berliner Weisse – Brewed with Virginia-grown calypso barley and malted wheat, this classic style was aged for a little over three months in Virginia wine barrels, ‘soured’ the traditional way with lactobacillus and time. Clean from aging, slightly tart from the lacto fermentation, refreshing. Enjoy singly or with a shot of our farm grown *Add raspberry reduction, additional $1.50.
Wine-Barrel Aged Muscadine Grape Wheat Ale - This American Wheat ale was brewed on Halloween 2022 and aged in wine barrels for almost a year with muscadine grapes grown here on the farm, slightly sour from the natural yeast present on the grapes. 5.6% ABV
“Ales for ALS” IPA – This is our seventh year of participating in the Ales for ALS program, where we are sent a unique blend of hops and donate $1 from every pint we sell, back to the foundation. This year's blend is made up of Simcoe, HBC 522, Talus, Eukanot, Loral, HBC 586 (experimental hop grown in yakima valley), and the granddaughter of warrior (HBC 630). Brewed in the West Coast IPA tradition, with layers of pleasant tropical and earthy notes. 6% ABV
"Cold Moon” IPA – This clean-drinking IPA features a Virginia-cultivated, neutral yeast, hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria at a total rate of over four pounds per barrel. Citrusy on the nose with a balanced bitterness on the finish. 6.8% ABV
Barrel Aged “Virginia Winter” Biere de Garde – A local-focused version of France’s “beer for storing.” Brewed with five different richly flavored malts all grown & malted in Virginia. Fermented cool and fully for a dry drinking beer with estery and peppery notes. A strong ale that also refreshes with a delicious stone fruit character. 8% ABV
Candy Roaster Porter - Brewed with 120 pounds of local Candy Roaster Squash, then roasted and added to the mash tun during the brewing process along with 100% Murphy and Rude malted barley. Chocolate, caramel, and roasty malt flavors add to the smoothness of the winter squash in this delicious local Porter. 6% ABV
