Bottle Release: Family Tree 3

Bottle Release: Friday, July 28th, 4PM (Troy Night Out)

FAMILY TREE 3: STRAWBERRY SOUR: Ale aged in oak barrels with strawberries

The newest entry in our continuing Family Tree Series, #3 began as the Table Beer and was blended with the original Family Tree iterations and finished on oak for 10 months. After aging, we added fresh strawberries, creating a delicate, effervescent sour ale reminiscent of a mid-summer spritzer.

This is a special Troy Night Out release and we are thrilled O'Malley's Oven will also join us as she pops up in our taproom and offers some strawberry-themed sweets.

Mayor Madden helps us mash-in

We were thrilled to have the assistance from Mayor Patrick Madden with the mash-in of our South Troy wet hop IPA on Tuesday, August 2nd. We chatted about the importance of small businesses for economies and it was fun to learn he is a former home brewer as well.
