*Fellow craft beer enthusiasts!*
Last summer everyone was drinking us out of house and home and with this summer fast approaching, we would like to remind our visitors that our tap list is subject to change periodically based on availability. If you have any questions about what is coming down the line or what we currently have on tap, please feel free to give us a call! We are actively planning our expansion for a production facility, but until we get it online, we ask that you be patient with us and the beers that we have available on any given day.
See you in the taproom!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Grisette style, it is the cousin of bisons and is climbing the ranks to be the next hit under the French/Belgian Farmhouse style. They are low alcohol, have a fair amount of wheat in the grain bill, and have noticeable hopping levels. Our Second Beach hits all those marks as we exclusively use Strisselspalt and Tardif de Bourgogne French noble hops giving it a pleasant lemony citrus aroma & flavor.
Style: French Grisette

Jacob's Farmhouse Ale
