This weekend, we’ll be unveiling “Overcast”, our Hefeweizen style beer.  Hefeweizen is a German-style wheat beer meaning “with yeast”, and is naturally cloudy in appearance.  Boasting tons of the German weizen flavor, if you’ve been enjoying 3PO, our Krystalweizen, you’ll love Overcast, our Hefeweizen.  Join us in trying Overcast as well as our other craft beers and homemade root beer.  Also, don’t forget to grab a bottle or growler fill of Jack-O-Java, our Pumpkin Coffee Spice Ale, or a growler fill of our Homemade Root Beer as these make an absolutely perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving meal!  We’ll be open on Saturday from 11-6 -  Map & Directions on our web site here.  

In Farm news, our CSA members are still receiving their weekly shares, chock full of fresh food from our farm!  Yes, there are still tons of fresh veggies growing here, both in our gardens with foods that can withstand colder outdoor temperatures as well as inside our passive-solar-greenhouse!  Our CSA ends in early December, and then we switch over to our indoor-greenhouse-grown micro-greens CSA all winter long (December through April).  We really do grow year-round right here on our farm!  You can join us for the winter – our Winter Micro-Greens CSA Sign-up is now open! Join us in eating fresh, local, and organic from our farm all winter long.  You can sign-up online or in our taproom.  Details here.

This Thanksgiving season we’re incredibly thankful for all of you, our customers!!!  A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of your for filling our taproom every Saturday & far exceeding our expectations for this brewery, and for our farm members for buying each & every one of our available CSA memberships.  THANK YOU!!!
