Follow the road to EL DORADO! Also Dark Side Stout Returns, Plus more Brew & Farm News!
Many have searched for El Dorado, and none have succeeded... until now! You can follow the road to our brewery to find it, because ON TAP this weekend is EL DORADO, our brand-new American Pale Ale style beer. It's not the lost city of gold, but it IS a beautiful golden-colored APA (APA is similar to IPA style, but with less bitter hops flavor). El Dorado weighs in at 6% ABV and 38 IBUs, is golden in color, with mild hoppiness... very drinkable & enjoyable! This beer was made with the "El Dorado" variety of hops!
Guess what we brewed again?! A fan favorite, our Dark Side Stout is back on tap at our brewery. This medium-bodied stout features flavors of chocolate & coffee. Delicious!
