Year-Round Favorites

Hand Crafted Pantry Staples

These are our most popular beers you can have at your local bar or favorite restaurant just about all year long. The ones our neighbors know and love. You’ll find them hanging around just about anytime, although we may give them a tweak every once in a while, depending on when interesting, fresh ingredients hit our doorstep throughout the year.

Some are available on draught at your favorite local pub, and some in bottles or growlers at your neighborhood bottle shop or grocery store. To help you find the closest spots you can get our beer, we've built a fancy little map on our website for you. Cheers!

Newlin’s Original Belgian Oatmeal Pale

Our Pale Ale uses flaked oats to smooth out the bitterness and is fermented with a Belgian yeast to provide layers of fruity esters that play wonderfully with the punchy Crystal & Galaxy hops that we dry-hop with for a more "American" hop aroma & finish. Named for the family who started the cotton mill in Saxapahaw a century ago, it's a clean, complex, refreshing take on the usual Pale Ale.

St. Benedict’s Breakfast Dubbel

Brewed with organic flaked oats, dark chocolate and locally-roasted Sumatran and Ethiopian Harar coffee beans from Morrisville, NC's Muddy Dog Roasting Company, our Trappist-style "Breakfast" Dubbel is a smooth, silky, eye-opening take on a classic style, with floral aromatics of deep-roasted coffee, spiced fig and rich, creamy cocoa.

Regent's Rye Tripel

Our take on the traditional Trappist Tripel-style ale, brewed with 100% NC-grown barley from Riverbend Malthouse in Asheville and authentic Belgian candi syrup. Crisp, bright and refreshingly dry, this Tripel takes advantage of a malted rye addition to provide a subtle spicy foundation for the yeast esters.

Rusted Plow Farmhouse Saison

Sporting shades of grassy lemon in both aroma and flavor with earthy Belgian yeast tones and just a touch of lactic tartness, our Rusted Plow Farmhouse Saison uses local Alamance County honey to fine tune the body of the beer and dry out the finish for a refreshing take on the style. We use additions during the boil of Sterling hops, and then dry-hop with Sorachi Ace.

Cotton Blossom Farmhouse IPA

A surprisingly easy-drinking, copper-toned Belgian-style pale ale with an "in-your-face" floral hop presence in both the smooth, bitter front end and the delicate, aromatic backend. Our Cotton Blossom Farmhouse IPA is more of a hybrid, in that it's brewed and dry-hopped with bigger, punchier American Centennial & Amarillo whole cone hops for a more localized aroma and finish.

ABV { 8.5%
IBU { 80

Belgian Chocolate Rye Stout

Brewed with copious amounts of flaked and malted rye for a bit of a spicy backbone, as well as caramel, chocolate & roasted barley to round out the malt bill, we add organic dark chocolate and a touch of licorice root to the end of the boil, which lends a bit of complexity to this rich, spicy, layered stout.
