Marietta, Georgia based Red Hare Brewing is building a second facility, two states away in North Carolina.
The idea to build a second facility occurred with Red Hare founder Roger Davis, and co-founder and head brewer Bobby Thomas took a trip to Oregon. Open air fermentation paired with the coastal climate inspired the duo to build something similar on the east coast.
Red Hare Brewing has selected the 111 year old former Coastal Drug Company building in Shallotte, North Carolina. American wild and sour ales will be the focus of the new facility.Expect the new space to house a coolship, and plenty of oak for fermentation and aging. Red Hare plans on capturing native yeast and bacteria for use their the wild ale lineup.
The Shallotte, North Carolina location should be open sometime in the second half of 2017. Red Hare has already named R.A.Jeffrey’s and Healy Wholesale as their local distributor.
Red Hare SPF 50/50, once a seasonal offering by the Marietta, Georgia based brewery, is now year-round.
Taking the brewery’s year-round, Gangway IPA, and blends it with their house made grapefruit soda. The end result is a hoppy, low alcohol by volume, HOPPY shandy/radler. If you think it sounds weird, we admit it is. But really, it works.
Wishing you were still on vacation? Transport yourself with Red Hare’s take on the classic European Radler. We’ve blended our Gangway India Pale Ale with our house-made grapefruit juice to create an India Pale Radler. This iPR “delivers a refreshing flavor that reminds you of the beach where it is always happy hour, and recovery is only a bacon buffet away.
Red Hare SPF 50/50 is a 12 ounce can and draft offering, now year-round in March, 2017.
4.2% ABV, 38 IBUs
Perhaps this is proof beer can be anything. Red Hare Berry Belgian Waffle is now now shelves.
This summer, the Marietta, Georgia based brewery released Cottontail Creamsic-ale, an orange creamcicle flavored pale ale. Building off the buzz that beer created is a new food inspired beer- Berry Belgian Waffle.
The base beer is a Belgian-style ale, brewed with bluberries, and favors that mimic waffles. Yes, beer can be anything you want it to be.
Red Hare Berry Belgian Waffle will be a 12 ounce can and draft offering.
Red Hare Cotton Tail Orange Creamsic-Ale is the next canned release by the Marietta, Georgia brewery.
The base beer being their year-round Cotton Tail Pale Ale, the Red Hare Brewing team has added orange and vanilla, with extra citrus notes coming from an addition of Zythos hops.
The result? It really does taste like an orange creamsicle. Plus a little bit of hoppy pale ale too. Our description might not do the beer justice, but believe us when we say, your nose will know when you open this can.
Orange flavors mirror the citrus notes of Zythos hops, while smooth sweet vanilla beans compliment their slight bitterness. Tastes just like a cold orange creamsicle on a hot day!
Red Hare Cotton Tail Orange Creamsic-Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft as a seasonal release.
5.5% ABV, 28 IBUs

Red Hare Barrel Aged Sour Whabbit Wheat is aged in Chardonnay barrels with both Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus souring bacteria.
This will be the third offering in the brewery’s Rare Hare Series. The brewery has not yet announced this beer.
