Once a beer has been on the market we usually do not make an announcement regarding a “release” but there are some exciting things surrounding this new batch of Farmer’s Table. As we mentioned the first time around, the design of this beer from recipe to label comes from a place very true to home. When it was first released in May, we discussed the idea of how harvests and a daily bounty being brought in from the fields should come together with this sessionable farmhouse beer to be the sustenance behind lengthy community gatherings.
As the end of summer approaches we get to actually celebrate this fresh batch of Farmer’s Table exactly as it is meant to be. As the long days of summer get a bit shorter each passing day, our farm store is stacked more plentifully with fresh heirloom tomatoes, onions, potatoes, kale, pasture raised chicken and eggs from our fields. At the same time, the cool summer evenings are the perfect setting to take a break from work in the brewery or the farm and join together for a family meal together.
And look at those hops! Growing more than 18 ft up the bine, they’ll be ready for picking and use in a special fresh hop farmhouse ale we’re brewing alongside the harvest. Which brings me to a very special side announcement. On September 5th, we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Hop Harvest Festival, and the first year in which we will be able to offer a pig roast (raised on our farm) and more importantly… our beer! [tickets available @ www.campsroadfarm.com] We’ll be bringing out the picking tables for people of all ages to take part and foster exactly the type of community event, and day long conversation we had in mind with this beer from the start.
Look at that label come to life! (we’re still working on the goat)
This batch features a slightly different dry hop character from the addition of Centennial to the Cascades used in the first two batches, for even deeper and prominent citrus notes on the finish.
