Retail Update for 3 June 2023

Viola Sofia • Harlan • Society & Solitude #4 • Marie • Bobber’s Seafood

For this upcoming week, Viola Sofia will return, alongside freshly packaged cans of Harlan, Society & Solitude #4, and Marie. Also, we’ll continue to curate a varied and timely selection of bottle and glass-pour offerings in the taproom, digging deep into our vintage archives!

We’ll be joined by Bobber’s Seafood, as our food vendor for the week!

Viola Sofia

Grassroots Brewing, circa 2005, was the conceptual precursor to Hill Farmstead Brewery.  What began in Denmark in 2009 has evolved over the last decade-plus into a parallel brand and domain for creative collaborations.

This imperial stout was originally brewed by Ryan Witter-Merithew in 2011 at Fanø Bryghus, Denmark, for Rome’s legendary Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà to celebrate the birth of the owner’s daughter. This reenvisioning of the original recipe benefits from the experience and learning inherent in a decade of growth.  This version is 10% abv and more rich and velvety than it was over a decade ago—one might taste the inspiration of Damon and the early structure of Danish-derived recipes.  As with all of our bottles, this imperial stout is bottle conditioned. 

Our retail shop’s bottle selection will also include Vera Mae 2022; Pear: 2021 Harvest; Works of Love: Russian River Brewing/The Lost Abbey; Anna: Motueka; Charlie; Sankt Hans; Civil Disobedience Blend 36; Biere de Norma; Wheat Blanc; Nonconformist 07; and guest offerings.

Additional canned offerings include Of First & Last Things (IPA); Double Motueka (DIPA); and Mary (German-style Pilsner).
