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  $6.25 / pint

 

“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.  5.5% ABV $6.25 / pint

“The Beta” Cantaloupe Wit -  A classic style unfiltered Belgian wit, with a large portion of the grist made up of Virginia-grown wheat.  Our farm-grown Golden Jenny and Trifecta cantaloupes were picked fresh, hand blended and added as whole fruit post-fermentation.  5.8% ABV $6.75 / pint

“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  $6.25 / pint

“Persimmon” Pale Ale – A special project we did with Virginia-native American Persimmons thanks to The Messick family, multi-generational farmer/neighbors, who picked them from their farm. Their family used to pick from their wild persimmon trees and ferment them as a low ABV beverage served out of a ladle.  This pasty fruit was mashed in with Virginia-grown Biscuit and Munich malts for a honey-like flavor. This year’s version is a little on the lighter side with rich flavor and a subtle sweet finish from the fruit. Persimmons give this ale a beautiful orange color and are full of vitamin C. 6.1% ABV $6.50 / pint

“Ales for ALS” IPA – This is our fourth 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 predominantly made up of Mosiac, Simcoe and Eukanot hops with some loral, sabro, citra, ahtanum and the granddaughter of warrior (HBC 630).  Brewed in the West Coast IPA tradition, with layers of pleasant citrus, tropical and earthy notes.  6.3% ABV $6.75

 

“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.  5.2 % ABV $6.25 / pint
