Farmhouse Slang is the mainstay mixed fermentation saison in our Belgian program. Similar to Oceans Between Us and You, Me and Everyone We Know, this beer will get a different treatment with each release. The whole idea with our Belgian program is to allow for flexibility and creativity without the restriction and consistency requirements our clean beer requires.
The result is one of our best beers and truly a culmination of everything we have learned about Saison over the years.
Farmhouse Slang won a bronze medal at the 2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship for French/Belgian Saison.
Born in a Barn
Born in a Barn was an idea born out of selfish necessity. We wanted a house beer that you could only enjoy while at the brewery. It quickly became a beer that y’all looked forward to drinking in the tasting room, even though many of you gave us grief about not letting it leave in a growler. Each iteration of Born in the Barn will be something new and exciting.
It's now available to-go in bottles.

Oceans Between Us
Oceans Between Us is a 100% Brettanomyces IPA and an ever-changing exploration of funk and hops. Each release will feature a new dry hop.

Awkward Uncle™ - Belgian Strong Dark Ale
This Belgian Dark Stong Ale is BIG AND BOOZY, just like the best and worst family gatherings. The rich malty sweetness of this festive ale is balanced by plentiful amounts of cherries, ginger & Cinnamon. This beer contains a lot of good cheer. Enjoy Responsibly
At Arm's Length™ - India Pale Lager
Throwing an absurd amount of American hops at a classic lager seemed only natural for us. Shh, don't tell the Germans. We like to keep them at arm's length
All my Tomorrows™ - Hoppy Saison
A modern interpretation of a classic farmhouse ale that celebrates American innovation. We kicked tradition to the curb, adding a generous amount of rye and American Mosaic hops to create a rustic Saison that’s earthy & fruity, with intense aromatics of juicy citrus.
Creature of Habit™ - Coffee Brown
A collaboration brew with Rhino Coffee to celebrate local artisiins. Rhino Coffee carefully selected and slow roasted a blend Kambata and Sidamo beans, providing pronounced layers of cocoa and undertones of stone fruit. We add the beans right to the tank elevating a classic brown ale to a coffee lovers dream.
Southern Drawl™- Dry-Hopped Pilsner
Southern Drawl is a dry hopped Pilsner made with Louisiana rice, making it a uniquely Southern beer. Mildly traditional...Wildly drinkable.
Commotion™ - American Pale Ale
Grace and Grit™ - Double IPA
Our Double IPA has strong tropical aromas derived from massive amounts of Citra and Amarillo hops. This incredible bitterness is balanced with honey malt creating a soft and slightly sweet hop bomb.
Reasonably Corrupt™ - Schwarzbier
A black lager with dark and roasty malt sweetness. Don’t let the darkness fool you – this is a sweeter, fuller-bodied version of the premium lager you know and love. It has a smooth, crisp finish, with depth of color and taste.
You, Me & Everyone We Know
"You, Me and Everyone We Know,” is the sour mainstay of our Belgian Program. The name is a testament to the people with whom we fill our lives -- people who inspire us, make us better, and those we couldn’t live without. This beer, like those people, motivates us to express ourselves through beer, which always seem to get better with age. Each batch of our Belgian Program beers will be a little different, but the base beer will always be a golden sour.
