Come on in ...
Our cooler is stocked with a variety of Sideways Farm Fresh Ales, our new gluten free Jun and local wine. The fields are blooming and you are free to wander the farm with a beverage! You can also purchase Sideways merchandise, freshly picked bouquets (or u-pick), hand crafted local wood fired pottery, and pasture raised eggs.
We aim to release something new each week. This week we are releasing #46 Rosewater Saison, which features a grassy note from the pilsner base, a spicy hop note, and was blended with rosewater (made from wild roses on our farm) for a wonderful floral aroma.
Next Friday, August 30th, we are releasing #53 Historic Table Porter. This long awaited release is chock full of nuttiness and balanced with a complementary bitterness, has a very low ABV at only 2.6%, and drinks like a cold chicory coffee.
Last week we released our #56 Rustic American Ale and our #54 Light Honey Ale. Be sure to stop by for a taste of #56 soon, it's a very small batch!
Now Serving Jun On Tap!
Naturally gluten free, jun is a fermented beverage similar to kombucha but made from green tea and honey.
It's lighter in flavor, and the blackberries from our farm give it a hint of tartness balanced by the ginger. As always we use local wildflower honey to naturally produce carbonation. We adapted a yeast to flourish in the acidic environment and have turned our jun into a low alcohol refreshing summer beverage! Coming in at 2.9% ABV, this one is perfect to enjoy on the porch after a hike.
Our offerings change constantly...
as newly brewed farm fresh ales are added and limited release offerings are sold out. So whenever you visit you'll find something new and perhaps a bottle or 2 left of an old favorite.
If you haven't visited before, we suggest starting with our guided tasting. It's a unique experience to our brewery. We, the owners (the farmer and the brewer), walk you through a curated list of 4 different ales, discussing our inspirations, obstacles, and ingredients as we go.
We have two guided tasting options: a Traditional Tasting consisting of ales in which there are only the 4 ingredients traditionally used in beer (barley/grains, hops, yeast, and water), and a Sideways Tasting featuring ales where we add additional ingredients (frequently fresh from our farm).
