Part of sourcing locally means we try to only bring you our special beers when the key ingredients are freshly harvested, usually from folks we know on a first-name basis. Cherries, figs, pecans... well, they just plain taste better when they're picked in season and used the day they're harvested. And that’s when we like to use them. To us, that’s just good common sense... the finished beer seems to like it better, too.
We're always working on something new, but you can find a few of our favorites below. And if you'd like to know more about how we use locally-grown ingredients to produce some of our special Belgian-style beers and sour ales, take a look at our Farmhand Exchange program, the goal of which is to source as many ingredients as possible from farms and gardens within 100 miles of our brewery in Saxapahaw.
