New Sour Beer, early spring farm pictures, and more Brew & Farm News!

A question we are frequently asked: "When are you going to make a sour beer"?  Well, folks, here it is.  "Alt Nation Tart" is the name of our newest creation!  A malty, fruity, slightly tart, German-style Alt beer. Altbiers feature Lager yeast fermented at Ale temperatures.  We chose this style, and then turned it into a tart creation for all of you who have been asking for a sour!  Light brown in color, mild fruity tart flavor!   5% ABV  20 IBU.
