Farm Brewed Beers

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

“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 

“Midlander” Lager -- This classic and unfiltered helles-style lager uses a recently rediscovered German yeast strain that was abandoned roughly 75 year ago for (very lame) production reasons.  Rediscovered by a lab and sensory tested and propagated locally by Jasper Yeast Lab, this beer has a super soft malt sweetness and subtle yeast flavor.  Bright & clean.  4.5% ABV 

“The Botanical” Saison - A fresh tasting saison with notes of lemon and pepper, fermented dry.  Brewered with dried elderflowers from our farm, adding a sweet and floral aroma.  5.8% ABV  

“The Greenway Extension” Berliner Weisse – Brewed with Virginia-grown calypso barley and malted wheat, this classic style was aged for a little over two months in Virginia wine barrels, ‘soured’ the traditional way with lactobacillus and time.  Clean from aging, slightly tart from the lacto fermentation, refreshing. 4.3% ABV

 

“Summer Haze” Hefeweizen - A refreshing summer beer with a traditional recipe heavy on the wheat: our batch was brewed with entirely Vriginia-grown red and white wheat malted in Charlottesville.  Open fermented warm to allow the yeast to produce this style’s signature fruity and spicy flavors.  A glowing golden color with a full, wheat-drive  mouthfeel.  4.5% ABV  

“Bramble” Blackberry Saison – We fermented this one warm with our French Saison yeast – all the way down to an FG of 1.002 – 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 

 

"Virginia" Pale Ale - Our 2021 version of an all Virginia brewed ale - a grain bill of organically grown barley from Loudoun, malted in Charlottesville, brewed with Powers Farm & Brewery Cascade and Galena hops. West Coast style hoppy beer dry-hopped for a more potent hop aroma.  5.3% 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 

“Agrarian Monk” Belgian Ale – Brewed with farm grown chamomile flowers, this Belgian yeast adds characteristics of clove, banana and spice. A cleaner malt bill and a flavor profile that mixes both dubbel and tripel abbey styles. 6.9% ABV 

 

Bourbon Barrel-Aged “Apricity” Oatmeal Stout –  Apricity refers to the warmth of the sun in winter. This roasty rich stout features local crimped oats and Virginia-grown barley, produced by Charlottesville’s Murphy & Rude.  Balanced with milk chocolate malt, bakers cocoa malt and fermented with a slightly estery strain from Jasper’s Yeast in Loudoun for some added traditional fruity notes.  6% ABV
