New Ginger Lite Premiering Tonight!

picture 277

Stop by tonight for the tapping of our new ginger ale – Ginger Lite! It is 5.5% ABV and made with fresh ginger, cane sugar, and British Ale yeast (Nottingham). It is light and creamy yet with an assertive ginger bite. The Nottingham yeast adds a complexity of flavor as well as lends a creaminess to it.

We’ll be tapping it at 5pm today and serving until 9pm. It should also be available tomorrow and Saturday too 🙂

Hours Update

By popular demand, we recently added Saturdays to the schedule! Our taproom hours are now Thursdays and Fridays 5-9pm and Saturdays 3-9pm. Stay tuned as we will be expanding them again over the summer. See you soon! Also stay tuned for special events we are taking part in!

Cheers!
