Year-Round Taps

Farm Life.JPG
Farm Life Lager
Lager
A style we think should have always existed but maybe it just died out with the DeLorean/rotary phone. This is a crisp, clean rice lager delivering sweet and hoppy notes. 

Alc. 4.0% // IBUs 12
 

Brush Mountain.heic
Brush Mountain Blonde
Blonde Ale
 

This light, yet malty brew brings a bit more to the glass than your average golden ale.  Red wheat and noble hops give a fuller flavor, dirty-blonde color and little bitterness. We are currently serving a gluten-removed version of the Brush Mountain Blonde Ale.

Alc. 5.1% // IBUs 17
 

Treerider IPA.JPG
Treerider IPA
Session India Pale Ale

This brew climbs the branches of your palate to a floral hop bouquet of citrus flavor and aroma. Golden Promise Pale malts mingle with three hop varietals: earthly yet fruity bitterness of Simcoe, Mosaic's herbal grab bag of flavor, and the tropical aromas of Equinox.

Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,

But dipped its top and set me down again.

Goat's Eye Rye.HEIC
Goat's Eye Rye
Rye Pale Ale

 

A goat finding your hop yard is like having a raccoon in your china closet.  Bittered with all American Warrior and Centennial hops. Also, some Honey malts to help to balance the dry, spiciness from the rye in the mash.  Dry-hopped with Saaz and Northern Brewer for nice earthy and evergreen aroma.

Alc. 5.8% // IBUs 68

 

Brown Chicken Brown Ale.JPG

Get Sun Sour
German Style Wheat Ale
 

If all the beer drops were sour drops and sun drops oh what a beer that would be!  Some could say it’s worth revolving around, or we might as well just keep orbiting. Yes, a few more circles around the sun with a refreshing beer in our hand will do!  A toast to the all things solar, and the daily dose UV, our favorite star of life and energy, featuring organic pale malt and Huell Melon Hops!

Farm Fizz

Low/No Alcohol

 
kombucha.jpg
Kombucha
Femented Tea

 

Kombucha is a fermented, probiotic drink made from sweetened tea and a symbiotic culture of yeast and bacteria (SCOBY). Taste can be described similar to sparkling apple cider and champagne depending on various factors. We use a mix of organic teas, English Breakfast black tea, Bancha green tea and Yerba Mate, and organic evaporated cane juice (sugar) from EATS in Blacksburg, and flavor primarily with freshly juiced seasonal fruits or dried herbs and teas. Kombucha contains some caffeine, acetic acid, B vitamins, antioxidants, trace amounts of alcohol and live bacteria and yeast - Give it a taste or bring your growler to enjoy regularly!

Ginger Beer
Fermented Ginger Ale

 

Our Ginger Beer (or "Ale") is fermented by Ginger Beer Plant (GBP). GBP is not really a plant, but rather a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (similar to a Kombucha SCOBY) of tiny grains, like semi-transparent rice granules. Lower sugar content and plenty of fresh organic lemon and ginger juice create a beverage that is tart yet a dry sweet, and fiery in ginger taste. This is a low-alcohol ferment.

soda.jpg
Soda
Non-alcoholic / Non-fermented

 

Always made from scratch, we offer a soda available on tap. Flavors vary and include root and herbal recipes, citrus and seasonal fruits.

Nitro Cold Brew.PNG
Nitro Cold Brew Coffee
Non-alcoholic / Non-fermented

 

Cold brewed, locally roasted coffee from Strange Coffee Company. The nitro adds a creamy mouthfeel that pairs perfectly with the coffee’s vanilla character.
