  Blizzard Of Hops & Anthology Winter  
  Nugget Nectar is here! We officially rolled out our infamous Imperial Amber Ale to Central Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and Lehigh Valley on January 11. Additional street dates through February are as follows:

January 18 – Western PA and NEPA
January 25 – DC, MD and NJ
February 1 – CT, DE, OH, MA, NC, NY and VA

Be sure to check out one of our “First Squeeze” events in your area. We’re hosting Nugget Nectar first tapping events in all of our major markets, and we’ve got tons of cool swag to giveaway at each event, including art prints, pint glasses, and bottle openers featuring our new Nugget Nectar artwork.  

It’s impossible to forget your first squeeze. Once a year, as the newest humulus lupulus harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend these super-fresh hops into an Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango.


  Mad Elf  
  We’re excited to announce plans to construct our new Splinter Cellar, which will add fermentation space for wood-aged specialty beers and serve as the new entrance for our behind-the scenes guided tours. The room will feature glass exterior walls on the northeast side of the brewery and three new wooden fermenters (called “foeders”) that will stand more than 23 feet tall. Construction has already begun earlier this month! Check out our blog for the full story.


  New Trøegs Art Unveiled  
  On February 1, the Hop Cycle comes full circle again as Cultivator hits the shelves. Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, this spring Helles Bock celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. Our spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops. For 2016, we’ll release Cultivator in 6-packs, 12-packs and cases of 12-ounce bottles as well as 12-packs of 12-ounce cans. Its new art follows the same path as our recently refreshed artwork, with a festive teal green color as a tribute to springtime, and cream and charcoal accents.  

  Winter Displays  
  To coincide with the release of Cultivator, our new Anthology Spring sampler pack will follow the same new look of our recently updated Anthology Winter. Each 12-pack includes our flagship Perpetual IPA along with year-round favorite HopBack Amber, Hop Cycle seasonal Cultivator Helles Bock, and another exclusive limited Scratch Beer release – a Belgian-style Saison. In the coming months, we’ll introduce new packaging and artwork for the remaining Anthology sampler packs for summer and fall, each including Perpetual IPA and rotating year-round, Hop Cycle, and Scratch Beer releases. 

  Nugget Nectar  

You know how a familiar guitar riff can take you to a great moment? Our newest year-round beer, Solid Sender Ale delivers a dynamic, dependable rhythm of caramel malt and Cascade hops. After a soft launch in PA, MD and NJ, Solid Sender is now available everywhere you can buy Tröegs beer as of January 1. Solid Sender Ale replaces Tröegs Pale Ale in our family of year-round beers. The term “solid sender” implies dependability and loyalty, proving the perfect name for our new “go-to” ale. Like a finely crafted tune, it’s the perfect beer to get stuck in your head. Use our Brew Finder to locate Solid Sender near you.

Saint Arnold News Letter

Saint Arnold Army Newsletter
Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:


3rd Annual Super Beef Sunday at Saint Arnold
Sunday, February 711:00 AM2:00 PM
The first Sunday in February means one thing around here: Super Beef Sunday. Oh sure, there’s also a football game being played. Maybe even a championship game. Perhaps what some might call a “Big Game.” We can’t remember what the game is called. We’re focused on the BBQ.

At our 3rd Annual Super Beef Sunday, a master of BBQ from Central Texas will be joined by a couple of young guns from Houston. Legendary Louie Mueller BBQ will be here alongside Pinkerton’s Barbecue and Feges BBQ. They’ll be doing what they do best – preparing and serving their finest smoked meats to fill your belly before you go to your game-watching party.

Of course, you’ll want tasty beverages to complement the BBQ, and that’s where we come in. Cold beer will be flowing, and you’ll be able to enjoy it from the commemorative Super Beef Sunday pint glass you’ll receive. How convenient!

Like previous years, Wayne of Louie Mueller BBQ will have pre-wrapped whole brisket and beef ribs available for pre-purchase (at the time of your ticket purchase). These beauties come with heating instructions, so you can tell your friends you cooked it all on your own. Wayne’s whole brisket will be $100 and a rack of three beef ribs will be $75.

Please note, while the event runs from 11:00 – 2:00 – and we will have plenty of BBQ for that time – do your best to arrive by 12:30, so you can try all of the different items the pitmasters will have to offer.

Tickets are $50 per person and include tastings from all three pitmasters, beer and a commemorative pint glass. Briskets and beef ribs to take home must be ordered at the time of your ticket purchase. They will not be available to purchase at the event.

Get your Super Beef Sunday tickets here.

Pub Nights in 2016: Now Every Friday!
Here’s our New Year’s Resolution: We’re going to host Pub Nights in our Beer Hall every Friday evening! Okay, there will be a few exceptions here and there, but we’ll have exactly 47 Pub Nights this year. Essentially, our Beer Hall hours on Fridays will now be 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM.

The way Pub Nights run won’t change. We’ll continue to tap rare beers from our cellar and one-off concoctions from the minds of our brewers. Our kitchen will continue to serve up tasty treats. You showed up in droves to play Trivia last month, so we’ll be bringing back Geeks Who Drink and other fun activities throughout the year.

This Friday, January 8, we’ll have a wealth of special releases. In bottles, we’ll have Bishop’s Barrel No. 7 and 12 along with Divine Reserve No. 14 and 15. On tap, we’ll have Pumpkinator 2014 and cask conditioned Art Car IPA.

Since it finally feels like winter outside, we’ll also be debuting a special version of Winter Stout, which was fermented in used bourbon barrels. We’re calling it Kling to Wood Stout.

As always, you’re welcome to come with an appetite. Chef Ryan and our kitchen crew will be serving delicious Pub Night fare including Burgers, Brats, Crawfish Rolls, Philly Steak Sandwiches and Spicy Pineapple Teriyaki Wings.

Valentines for Veterans at Saint Arnold
Monday, January 186:009:00 PM

We’ve been teaming up with Valentines for Veterans for several years now to host an evening of beer and crafts for a great cause. The event raises funds for an incredible local organization, Expedition Balance. This group is committed to providing holistic support for Houston-area combat veterans facing PTSD.

Here’s how the evening works:

  • $10 gets you entry into the brewery. $5 from each ticket will go directly to Expedition Balance. Taps are open for the evening.
  • Craft tables will be set up so you can get creative and make valentines to honor our veterans.
  • Browse the bake sale featuring sweet and savory items from some of Houston’s best pastry chefs and home bakers. Enjoy with your beer or take home for later! All proceeds will be donated. There will also be a raffle featuring items from some of Houston’s best local businesses.
  • Two of Houston’s best food trucks, Blood Brothers BBQ and Taco Nuts, will be outside in the parking lot ready to feed you! They are generously donating 5% of their proceeds as well.

Throwback News Leeter

January Events, Oysters, and Cribbage!

Happy New Year, everyone! Like many people do in the new year, we’ve made a few resolutions. The most important one is to spend more time with good friends doing what we love to do – playing games and eating great food! To help us with this resolution, we have some great events lined up this month.

First up is a beer dinner at Revolution Taproom and Grill on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at 6 pm. This 5-course meal offers mouthwatering dishes such as Lacquered Scallops & Pork Belly, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and warm Dulce de Leche Cake. For more information on this beer dinner, including the full menu, please check out our website. Or, call Revolution at 603-244-3022 for a reservation!

Next up – cribbage night! We love games. For us, it is the ultimate form of relaxation – especially when paired with drinking a few beers! :) We also love when folks come in to the brewery, grab one of the games from the shelf, and start playing, laughing, and having a great time. To that end, we thought we would deem Wednesday, January 13th (at 6pm) Cribbage Night, and see if anyone would be interested in showing up and playing a few games. We have three boards here, and we would love if folks bring a board if they have it. Shoot us an email to let us know you are coming, so that we can reserve a large enough table. And, if there is enough interest, we can make this a regular event!

Below, you can find more information on our other January events, including Oyster night on January 20th!

–Annette & Nicole

January events
Jan 9th – Farmers’ Market Rollinsford, NH
Jan 12th & 13th – Beer & Game dinner at the Black Trumpet featuring our beer collaboration with Smuttlabs called Soggy Donkey – a White IPA fermented with Brett. Look for this beer at our brewery in the next week!
Jan 13th- Cribbage night. 6pm
Jan 13th- Our first Unafraid of the Dark V beer will be released!
Jan 14th- Beer Dinner at Revolution. 6pm
Jan 16th – Patriots Playoff Game in the Brew House 4:30pm
Jan 20th- Oyster night! 4-9pm
Jan 23rd – Farmers’ Market Exeter, NH
Jan 31st – Book Club @1pm. We will be discussing “Among the Ten Thousand Things” by Julia Pierpont.
Several years ago, we brewed an Oyster Stout for our Unafraid of the Dark beer series. It was roasty, a touch briney, and nice & light in body for a stout. We loved it! So when we discovered that one of our Throwback customers also owned an oyster company (Bay Point Oysters), we thought, “hey, we should make that beer again!”. Well, we are making it again – on January 20th.

The last time we made this beer, we took the oysters right out of the kettle, rinsed off the hops, fried them, and made the most delicious Po’ Boys we ever tasted!

Since we now have a much bigger system (i.e, many more oysters) and a restaurant, we thought we would give the beer oysters this year to Chef Carrie to work her magic and share the results with you. As such, on Wednesday, January 20th, the special for the night will be Oyster Po’ Boys made using the oysters from the beer… and whatever else Chef might have up her sleeve! Yum!

Sam Adams News Letter

Hey Badassbeer!

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe another holiday season has come and gone, but here at the brewery we’re excited for what January has in store. It might be the coldest month of the year, but we’re embracing that by hosting an awesome open house, listening to (and rewarding) your conversation about the weather on social media, and of course, warming up with some great beers. We have a few brews fresh out of the fermenters that are headed your way, as well as several returning favorites including Cold Snap and Scotch Ale, winner of our 2015 “Brewer’s Vault” drinker vote. With all of that to look forward to, you won’t even notice the temperatures dipping. Cheers to a new year and new beer!

Cabin Pack

The coldest season is around the corner, but don’t hunker down until you’ve picked up the Samuel Adams Cabin Pack. In addition to introducing a brand new Session Ale, we’re excited to bring back some classics including Scotch Ale, the winner of our Brewer’s Vault contest in which we asked you to vote for your favorite throwback beer to bring back in 2016. We have a good feeling this year’s pack will get you through winter’s chilliest days.

Boston Lager: The backbone of the Samuel Adams family of beers, this complex and balanced lager is a great brew no matter what time of year.

Cold Snap: This crisp and hazy golden White Ale is a sign of warmer days to come with its refreshing blend of smooth wheat and subtle kick of spring spices, fruit, and floral flavors.

Noble Pils: Brewed in the Bohemian tradition yet anything but ordinary, this crisp golden lager is full of character with all five Noble hops for a layered fresh and citrusy flavor.

Escape Route: Our take on the classic Kölsch style combines the subtle fruit notes of an ale with the smooth crispness of a lager for a bright, refreshing brew.

Session Ale: This down-to-earth ale, available only in this pack, celebrates the floral, bitter, and slightly spicy character of Tettnanger hops, along with more earthy notes from East Kent Goldings.

Scotch Ale: Full-bodied with roasted and chocolate malt notes, this beer’s subtle smoky flavor is followed by a lingering, sweet finish and distinct coffee character. Brought back by drinker demand, this beer is only available in our Cabin Pack. Once it’s gone, it’s gone!

Coldest Week of the Year

You can’t fight the weather and with another New England winter about to bear down on us, we’ve decided to celebrate it instead. We’re heralding Cold Snap’s return by celebrating the coldest week of the year – typically the third week of January. Take to Twitter to let @SamuelAdamsBeer know how miserable your weather is. We’ll watch the conversation, declare the city with the most cold weather-related buzz, and then throw a party for all those who endured the coldest of the cold.

More of a show-not-tell person? Post a picture on Instagram expressing how you feel about the winter with #SnapTheCold #Contest (you must use both) @SamuelAdamsBeer and we’ll pick a winner every week to receive a Cold Snap prize pack and a $50 American Express gift card. Find a Cold Snap party near you here.

Coming Soon: Sam Adams Nitro Project

It’s a new year, and that means new beers! The Sam Adams Nitro project launches at the end of this month and is unlike anything we’ve done before. Known for their captivating cascades and smooth creaminess, nitrogenated beers are often linked to stouts; but we’re breaking the mold, introducing a White Ale, IPA, and Coffee Stout. One sip of our smooth, velvety Nitro White Ale with its light wheat character and hints of orange and peppery spice, and you’ll be hooked. The IPA, at 100 IBUs, is dry-hopped to achieve a bold hop character with resinous pine and citrus hop notes, while still maintaining the classic nitro smoothness we love. The rich, robust Coffee Stout has notes of bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit, and is made with Sumatran and Indian Monsoon Malabar coffees that add a deep, roasty finish. Look for all three in 15oz. cans and Nitro White Ale on draft starting at the end of January. Find out more here, then pop, pour, and enjoy!

BTAD Updates/Events

Last month a panel of judges, including our Founder and Brewer Jim Koch, named New York City-based Chic-a-peas the winner of the 2015 Brewing the American Dream Pitch Room Competition. Chic-a-peas co-founders Dave Levi and Darren Shlisky were awarded a $10,000 grant and will receive a year’s worth of coaching and mentoring from Samuel Adams employees. To learn more about the Pitch Room Finals and where to find Chic-a-peas products, click here.

BTAD Spotlight on: Harlem Chocolate Factory, New York
The Harlem Chocolate Factory is an artisan chocolate company based right in the heart of Harlem. This female-owned business started by chocolatier Jessica Spaulding uses high-quality ingredients in its premium, decadent chocolates, which Jessica shared with us when she competed in our New York City Pitch Room Regional event in November.
Click here to learn more about Harlem Chocolate Factory and the awesome handcrafted treats, including Harlem bars, truffles, bark, and more, that pay homage to Harlem’s culture and history!

To learn more about other small businesses in our program across the country, visit our website. Cheers to knowing our beer doesn’t just taste good, it does good!

Inspired by the traditional Belgian witbier style, we developed our own take on this brilliant brew. The truly unique taste of Samuel Adams Cold Snap is created from our signature spice blend that gives it a distinct and lively character. This blend ranges from fruits to spices and even a few flowers to create a myriad of flavors to discover with each sip. We also dry spice the beer, similar to dry hopping, to bring out the full character of the fresh ground spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

Check out our Find a Sam page to find a Cold Snap near you.

The holidays may be behind us, but now is the best time to head over to our e-store for the year-end clearance event. Check out our selection of t-shirts, hats, glassware, and accessories, all available for a limited time at up to 50% off! After all, it’s never too early to start planning next year’s gift-giving.

In our opinion, there is no better Samuel Adams experience than the one you get here at the Boston Brewery. Come learn about our history, the brewing process and, of course, taste some of our award winning beers.

New Years Day at Saint Arnold

This Friday, we’ll be open for the first day of 2016 and kicking the new year off with a few special beers. We feel like that’s the best way.

In addition to our everyday lineup, we’ll be tapping a keg of Bière De Saison with Brettanomyces and a special version of our 20th Anniversary Ale aged in Cognac Barrels. We’ll also have Bishop’s Barrel No. 9 – Pumpkinator aged in Woodford Reserve and Willett Bourbon Barrels.

Our Beer Hall will be open normal weekday hours – 11:00 AM – 4:30 PM – and we’ll be serving a limited food menu (see it here) along with our Daily Special (available until 2:00 PM):

Mixed Greens with Tomato, Red Onion, Radish and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Seared Pork Chop with Collard and Mustard Greens, Black Eyed Peas and Cornbread

Grow a Beard, Win an iPad!
Enter Our Annual Donegal Beard Growing Competition
Does your beard define you? Are you often mistaken for Saint Arnold himself? Do birds attempt to nest in your facial hair? If you’ve answered yes to any or all of these questions, you sound like a prime candidate to compete in our Donegal Beard Growing Competition. Your wildest beard dreams may just come true.

A donegal beard aka chin curtain grows along the jaw line and covers the chin completely. Think Irish-style or Abe Lincoln. That’s what you’ll be sporting during the competition on St. Patrick’s Day.

Here’s how to enter: Step one: Between January 1 and January 6, shave any current facial hair you may have. Everyone must start clean-shaven. Step two: Email us an official “before” photo of your clean-shaven self holding up the day’s newspaper. If you aren’t sure what a newspaper is, pull up the Houston Chronicle’s website on your laptop or tablet and take a photo with that.

Email your photos no sooner than Friday, January 1 and no later than Wednesday, January 6 to You can also stop by the brewery during public hours, and we’ll take your photo for you.

Step three: grow a beard. Step four: keep growing a beard.

We will crown the winner at our annual St. Patrick’s Day Party at the brewery on Thursday, March 17. The Donegal Beard Growing Champion will be awarded an iPad Air 2. This iPad can be used for beard research, styling tips and trading beard stories with other beard enthusiasts. Or anything else an iPad can do, we suppose.

Fine print: Clean-shaven means no facial hair. Sideburns must be cut at least halfway up the ear. Previous winners are ineligible for two years. We will be seeking qualified, independent judges for the competition.

Texas Bowl Tailgate at NRG Stadium

Heading out to the bowl game today? Check. Got your face paint on? Check. Need a spot to tailgate? That’s where we come in!

We’ll be set up in the Platinum Lot at NRG Stadium by 4:30 PM. If you know where our normal spot for Texans games is, look for us around there. We’re going to be as close to there as we can get.

You’ll see our red van and Saint Arnold flag flying overhead. You’ll see beer too. That’s kind of our thing.

Our tailgate will be open to fans of both teams, and really anyone to who wants to stop by. Join us!

Santo De Mayo Social Run at Flying Saucer, Downtown
Sunday, January 31 at 9:00 AM

Our Santo De Mayo 5K will be returning in May, so now’s the time to start preparing. Of course, the way to prepare for our 5K is by running through Downtown and enjoying beers and breakfast tacos.

We’ll start at the Saucer, run to the brewery and finish back at the Saucer. Pre registration is not required. You can come out and run for free, or you can pay $15 and get three Saint Arnold beers, a pint glass and two breakfast tacos. That’s a heck of a deal.

You can also register for the Santo De Mayo 5K on site. $40 will get you the above, plus registration for the run on Sunday, May 1.

Learn more and see the course map on Facebook.

Unafraid of the Dark V card goes on sale Saturday, 11/28!

New year, new beers! 2016 will see the fifth year of our popular Unafraid of the Dark program. For those of you not familiar with this program, here’s how it works… Starting in early January, we will begin releasing a unique batch of dark beer every two weeks, until just about the end of March. We sell ‘punch’ cards good for growler fills of six unique, limited edition dark beers. Each beer features an ingredient that is either grown at a local farm, lovingly raised in a local garden, or made by a local business. We’ll have six in total, which we hope is enough to get you (and us) through the coldest months of the year. For more info head here.

Smuttynose News Letter

We’ve got your beery plan for the day after Thanksgiving. Read this and pass it on.

Slack Friday

Everyone experiences the holidays a little bit differently. Some folks love the bustle of shopping, seasonal movies and performances, parties, friends, and family. Other people absolutely hate it. Whether you love it or hate it, the heart of the holiday season really kicks off the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday.

Smuttynose is happy to offer an alternative to stampedes at big box stores; a beer-filled respite from an over-filled house of cousins, aunts and uncles; something you can do for yourself- our second Slack Friday Celebration at our Towle Farm brewery.

On offer, for your enjoyment:

  • A Warehouse Sale of Smuttlabs, Big Beers, and Vintage bottles we’ve been aging in house. Selected Smuttlabs and Big Beer Series releases will be on special offer. We want to start 2016 with a clean warehouse and you’ll need to restock your cellar for the cold weather ahead!
  • A selection of rare Smuttynose Big Beers will go on tap at Hayseed Restaurant:
    • 2010 S’muttonator
    • 2012 Scotch Ale
    • 2010 Imperial Stout
    • 2009 Gravitation
    • 2008 Wheat Wine
  • A trial sampling of two varieties of Smudding (this is NOT an April Fool’s joke!), made by our friends at Echo Farms Pudding in Hinsdale, NH.
  • The Return of the Community Christmas Tree! Smuttynose will donate $2 to the Hampton Community Coalition for each ornament you bring to decorate the tree from Slack Friday until Christmas Eve.
  • Guaranteed turkey-free comfort food specials at Hayseed Restaurant.
  • WXGR FM will be broadcasting live from the brewery.
  • Tours and tastings will be available as usual
  • The disc golf course is open and ready for you.

Last but not least, members of Portsmouth Brewery’s Imperial Pint Club and Smuttynose Big Beer Series Subscribers will save an extra 10% of all Smerch and beer purchased at Smuttynose. Don’t forget your membership cards!

2016’s beer release schedule will be much more structured than 2015’s: 12 Smuttlabs releases, 6 Big Beers, 5 Calendar beers, and our fantastic year round offerings. There may be a few surprises in the pipeline, but officially, there’s nothing to say about things that don’t exist.

Here are the final releases for wild and wooly 2015:

  • November 14: Smuttlabs Smoked Peach Short Weisse (~7%peach berliner-style weisse beer with peaches and beechwood-smoked malt)
  • December 5: Big Beer Series Rocky Road (7.3% dessert stout brewed with cacao nibs, Fluff and aged on amaretto oak)
  • December 12: Smuttlabs Nótt (7.3% dark farmhouse ale)
  • The first new beer of 2016 is the Big Beer Series release of East Coast Common, a hoppy lager that’s been warm-fermented in the San Franciscan style. It’ll be released on January 4.

New Smerch Options!

Throwback News Letter

Throwback Brewery – Fat Alberta & Figgin’ Forty release, Pats Games in the Brew House, and more!

Our Brew House Theatre – Pats Game Tomorrow!

As we mentioned in our October email, we recently purchased a nice wide screen and a projector to show movies, events, and games in our Brew House. Given how many of our customers are Patriots fans, we decided to show all Patriots games when we are open – including tomorrow’s 4:25pm game versus the Giants! (note- even though we typically close at 7 on Sundays, we will stay open as long as the game is on!)

Here are the other games we plan to show (which are also listed in our event calendar, too!):
– Dec 6 – Versus the Eagles – 4:25pm
– Dec 13- Versus the Texans – 1:00pm
– Dec 20 – Versus the Titans – 1:00pm
– Dec 27 – Versus the Jets – 1:00pm
– Jan 3 – Versus the Dolphins- 1:00pm
– Plus playoff games!

So come on by, grab some food & beer in the pub, and bring it into the Brew House to enjoy while watching the game. We will also have our servers frequently swing through the Brew House to grab you more food & drink as you need.

Speaking of food, tomorrow’s Chef’s Whim is all about our fresh, house-made sausage. We will be offering a breakfast sausage gravy with biscuits and fried eggs, a hot italian sausage & pepper sandwich, and a turkey / apple / campari sausage with roasted long pie pumpkin and cornbread stuffing.

Hope to see you tomorrow! Go Pats!

Fat Alberta is Coming!

As soon as the leaves begin to turn and the temperatures drop, the most common question we get from folks is ‘when is Fat Alberta coming?’. For those of you not familiar with Fat Alberta, she is our Chocolate Peanut Butter Imperial Stout, and we brew her about once a year. Fat Alberta clocks in at 10%, but you wouldn’t know it! This decadent beer tastes like a chocolate peanut butter brownie. It’s great as a dessert in and of itself, or, we think even better when paired with chocolate.

So, to answer the original question, we are going to be releasing Fat Alberta on Sunday, December 13th, starting at noon. But that’s not all, on this day we will also:
– Be selling 16.9 oz bottles of Fat Alberta as well as 4 oz and 12 oz pours.
– Release bottles of our Figgin’ Forty for the first time ever! Figgin’ Forty is our chocolate fig Baltic porter. We’ve been aging this for many months now, and it’s at its prime!
– Tap a special pin (cask) of Campfire – S’mores style. Yep, we are aiming to re-create that perfect Campfire scene.
– Finally, we will have several Fat Alberta food specials designed by our talented Chef Carrie. Some of these specials will use Fat Alberta in the dishes. All food options will, of course, be delicious and pair well with our beers!

On the 13th of December, like all Sundays, we will be open 12pm to 7pm. Hope to see you at the farm!

–Annette & Nicole

Getting Ready for the Holidays!

In case you want to give a little bit of Throwback love to your friends and family this holiday season, we thought we would share with you some potential gift ideas that we are working on that should be ready by early December.

First, we’ve been getting lots of comments from folks about how much they love Chef Carrie’s beer mustards and also lots of questions about if they can bring the mustard home. As are result, we are going to start packaging some of the goodies coming out of Hobbs Farm Kitchen, including the Maple-Kissed Porter Mustard and Chef Carrie’s ultra craveable hot fudge sauce. We are working on the labels now, and hopefully can get this ready to go for the Holidays!

Second, we are going to be selling our Unafraid of the Dark cards starting on Saturday, November 28th – which is also Small Business Saturday! For those of you not familiar with this program – we sell ‘punch’ cards good for growler fills of six unique, limited edition dark beers. The beers are released every two weeks, starting the first week of January and running through the end of March. This year’s lineup includes a Black Forrest cake, which is a lagered stout with cherries, chocolate and oaky rum notes. Other beers include an Imperial Porter with fruity notes coming from local plums, a smoked apple robust porter, and a carrot cake milk stout.

Finally, look for us to package last year’s one-off Unafraid of the Dark beer El Chupbrewcabra- Mexican Chocolate Porter into bottles that as our Winter seasonal! We can’t wait for this!
