8th Anniversary Update

For those of you joining us this Saturday, 5/26/2018, we are expecting a large crowd!  We will have some processes in place to help expedite orders and provide the best experience possible. Please bring cash for a convenient, onsite-consumption can offering.

The Bottle Shop will be business as usual, and we still have a number of cans and bottles available. We do not anticipate any of the listed bottles selling out, and cans are likely to last well into the day.

The Taproom will be open for Growler Orders Only.

  • No onsite draft pours
  • No Bottle Pours
  • Growler Limits are Subject to Change

 For a beer to drink while here: We will have expedited cash-only cans being sold by our staff walking the grounds.  The same onsite-consumption can offering may also be ordered (cash/credit) when it comes time to place your growler order.

Food is being served by Caja Madera & Black Diamond BBQ, so come hungry!

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


2018 Anniversary Week Bottle Release!

On Weds., May 23, we will release a brand new batch of Sue during our Anniversary Week!

Sue is the wine barrel-aged version of Susan (1891-1975), our grandfather's sister and the namesake of our bright, citrusy and beautiful Farmstead® India pale ale. We aged a small amount of the base beer for nearly a year in French oak wine barrels with our resident microflora, encouraging it to develop and evolve into its current manifestation: a complex, lightly tart and delicately dry-hopped Farmstead® ale.

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy,

Also, for the Anniversary Week, we'll have loads of fresh cans!

  • Double Citra
  • Society & Solitude #6
  • Marie
  • NEW: What is Enlightenment?

Check out for a complete list of what's available in the bottle shop and tasting room.

Introducing Poetica

Hello Everyone,

This week we present to you a project many moons in the making.

After a trip to Pilsen (Czech Republic) last November with Bob, I returned with a creative drive to elevate Mary, our German-style Pilsner, to a higher state of elegance and refinement. In what will likely become an exhausting pursuit of reformation and refinement, we began lagering a portion of Mary in a single French oak puncheon in our cooler. After nearly two months, the beer was moved to tank and krausened (as is all of our lager) with fresh fermenting beer in order to provide natural carbonation. After nearly 3 months of further conditioning and slow carbonation, I am confident that we can present you with what should become a singular experience—Mary has been softened, refined, and elevated.

We will continue this pursuit through further lager experimentation. This is an immersion into origins, into simplicity, and a gift granted by obsessive singular possession.

This lyrical revision of Mary—and this ongoing pursuit—will now be known as "Poetica" and will only be available on draft.

Gratefully yours,



Bottle Release for May 16, 2018

On Weds., May 16, we'll debut two brand new beers!

• Civil Disobedience 24
This iteration in our series of blended barrel-aged Farmstead® ales is a careful curation of various threads from our barrel cellar. This includes the debut, albeit in blended form, of the soon-to-be-released Sante Adairius “Residency” beers; Works of Love: Farm Ghosthands; Brother Soigné; Edith; Arthur; Florence; and Biere de Norma. Golden amber in color, complex and delicate, this continues our tradition of a non-blonde offering on every fourth entry in the series. 750ml.

• Civil Disobedience—Persimmon
For this small, unique batch, we blended and aged George and Arthur in a bourbon barrel for nine months, and then further aged the blend atop fresh, local persimmons sourced by nearby Elmore Roots Nursery. 375ml.

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy,

We'll also have fresh cans of Double Galaxy and a new batch of Brother Soigné!

Anniversary Week 2018!

Grand Opening 2010!As many of you know, during the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend, we commemorate the anniversary of our brewery—this year, we'll mark 8 years from that grand opening day!

Like the previous few years, we won't be hosting a formal event but will celebrate during the week with those of you who join us between Weds., May 23, and Sat., May 26!

Through the week, we'll have our retail shop stocked up with a variety of IPA and DIPA cans (and more), lots of bottles (including some vintage offerings!) and guest beers as well—stay tuned for details!

On Wednesday and Thursday only, we'll offer special onsite only offerings on draft and in bottles.

On Friday and Saturday, anticipating a larger turnout, we will offer a limited onsite menu to expedite service, as well as a special treat or two.

Also, in honor of the birth of Ralph Waldo Emerson on May 25, we'll have Society & Solitude in various iterations available!

Caja Madera will be on site throughout the entire week serving up amazing tacos and more, and then we'll be joined on Saturday by Black Diamond Barbeque for even more epic food!

We look forward to seeing you all week!



Bottle Release for May 9, 2018

On Weds., May 9, 2018, we will offer in our tasting room only (no take away!)  a new, special variant of our Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout - Damon (Coffee Collective: El Desarollo). 

In honor of our dear Damon, we chose two distinct barrels that had aged for more than two years and conditioned them atop El Desarollo coffee beans from Colombia sourced and roasted by our friends at The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Following many months of bottle conditioning, this special beer is ready for release.

Reminder, this bottle will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room.  Due to the alcohol content, we must encourage that you bring a friend to share.  

We will also have bottles of Barrel Aged Dorothy and fresh cans of a new iteration of our Cascade Double IPA:  Society & Solitude #1! This version will feature a blend of New Zealand Cascade and Segal Ranch Cascade hops. 

Check out for a complete list of what's available in the bottle shop and tasting room.
