Galahad English Ale is BACK, Lettuce & Spinach, parking lot Expansion, and more Brew & Farm News!

Galahad, our English Mild Ale-style beer, has returned!  This brown ale is mild & drinkable - a taste of London in every sip.  Also, we're EXPANDING our Parking Lot!  We began work this week, thank you to all of our customers for filling our parking lot to capacity & overflowing every weekend!  Lastly, our Cherry Wheat Ale is a mild Fruit Beer that will be a BIG HIT at your Easter Celebration!  We don't yet bottle our Fruit Beers, but we do offer them in Growler Fills!  Stop in to our taproom this weekend for your growler fills (and a pint or two while you're here!).  Lastly, we have NEW Unicorn Tears pub glasses for purchase, see below - we think they're beautiful!

In Farm News, our fresh organic Lettuce & Spinach are great for Easter (especially on leftover ham sandwiches!) Or, try our lettuce & spinach with a Warm Ham Dressing recipe-  recipe at the bottom of the newsletter - simply swap out leftover ham instead of Bacon!
 Lastly in farm news, Winter CSA Micro-Greens members: Group B is scheduled to pickup their micro-greens this weekend.

Visit our Taproom & Store!!!  Now Open - Fridays 4-8 pm, and Saturdays 12-8 pm - visit our web site for location, directions, and more:
