Anniversary beer

Our fourth anniversary beer is Sour Black Saison with Cherries!

This American farmhouse ale was pitched with our house culture, aged in whiskey barrels and re-fermented on tart cherries. Featuring a cherry aroma and chocolatey flavors, this is a restrained sour ale with moderate tartness. Minimal sweetness, low bitterness, and high effervescence make this is a sour beer you can enjoy all day!

5.9% ABV • 7 IBU

The beer schedule is finalized, plan your Saturday accordingly! We’ll be tapping a new batch of Fourth Anniversary Block Party guest beers every hour to spread them across the afternoon. Our full lineup of Ardent beers, as well as cider, mead, and prosecco, will be available all day.
