Three years ago Old Economy Village shared the “House” beer recipe of the Harmonist Soceity with us to recreate the beer for them.
After someone that knew Swabic German a bit better than I translated it, “The Harmonist” was created. It’s so good we now make it annually and this Saturday we plan on tapping. The recipe is from the mid 1800s and had origins in Germany.
The result is a wonderfully delicious and easy drinking “black beer”. We describe it as a hybrid between a black lager and a light porter. Lightly hopped and not all that roasty considering the color.
Only around once a year so get it while it is here!
Every year we make our Pecan Pie Beer that is available for ONE DAY (usually). It’s a brown ale made with REAL pecans, brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It is easily our most popular beer usually selling out on Wednesday. We do sell growlers, however once we start getting low on the beer we cut them off. Usually around 8-9 pm.
YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN GROWLER! We are fresh out.
This year we also have some pretty cool dessert shooters. Highly recommend them. Lower alcohol (for a shooter at least) and great to do with a few friends. I mean it is Thanksgiving so hanging out with friends and family is a good idea.
If you want a reminder hit up our Facebook Event Page and say you’re going for a friendly reminder via the interweb.
The Gose Experiment worked out nicely and we are going to rotate between the Raspberry Gose and the Passionfruit gose on a regular basis! Always going to try and have AT least one sour beer on tap.
We also tapped a new beer last week that has been very popular, ESB After Dark. An Uber malty ESB that is incredibly drinkable…goes wonderfully with food.
Going forward we will have more barrel aged beer available. We have a Juniper Berry IPA in a Gin Barrel, a Maple Porter in a whiskey Barrel, and some wine and rum barrels that will get a workout as well!
Tapping a completely new brew this Friday….ESB After Dark. We are doing a classic English Bitter but added a ton more roasted malt for a very malt forward English Styled Ale.
Also tapping our Habanero Cider called “Heartburn”. It’s SPICY!
We will be tapping THREE new Gose styled beers over the next week. Today we tap our Traditional Gose as well as our Passion of The Gose. A Passionfruit infused Gose which is out of this world.
Next week we are also tapping a Raspberry Gose which tastes more like a Raspberry Soda! We went heavy on the Raspberry to say the least! Pictured below is the Gose aging on the Raspberries.
There will be a concerted effort to have a Gose on tap throughout the year so we had to test a few varieties…ALL SUPER SMALL batches! So if you want to try it, come and get it!
After a brief hiatus we are bring back to regulars and favorites…The I.Porter.A and our Loaded Nachos. We are also firing up the grill and doing some loaded nachos this weekend.
This Saturday we are tapping this years Pumpkin Beer (I know, close to October when you’re already sick of Pumpkin) OH MY GOURD! IT’S BARREL AGED! We made it in April and let it hang out in a Whiskey Barrel until last week. Get this…it contains REAL PUMPKIN! It’s a Stout base, around 7% ABV with pumpkin, cinnamon, and a kiss of nutmeg. Nice chocolate/roast malt flavor with pumpkin spice on the nose and the back end.
A portion of the beer sales Saturday are going to the Humane Society as we host a fundraiser for them. We are raffling off the Whiskey Barrel the beer was aged in, and a $50 BBC Gift Card. Also having some other cool stuff like cat themed cocktails (Which we will be donating $5 from each cocktail to the Humane Society).

WienerFest is this weekend! Oktoberfest is upon us and we have just tapped our German Pale Ale…that means we have wieners. The German Pale Ale is one of (if not) the best beers we make annually. We tap this around Oktoberfest every year. It has the malt base of a tradtional Oktoberfest beer, but we add German Merkur and Magnum hops for a nice bitter backbone.
We will have an assortment of sausages to stick in between delicious soft buns all weekend long. Also a few choice toppings like cooked onions, peppers, mustard, and cheese.
Stop in, grab a wiener,grab a beer and enjoy WienerFest 2017.
Friday we will be tapping our most recent barrel Aged experiment…a Rye Stout…in a whiskey barrel. I tried my first Rye based Stout about three years ago…long story short a small brewer in California sent it to me with the message, “You really need to try doing this!” Well, three years later I finally get to it and I added the twist of barrel aging it.
Comes across very nice. There is a spicy bite to the rye which gives into some chocolate and mild oak notes. Bone dry for the style.
We also are having Chocolate Peanut Butter Martinis this weekend! I wasn’t in the mood for one so…TA-DA! It’s on the menu.
