Carolina Bauernhaus Strawberry Farmhouse Ale bottles debut this weekend

Carolina Bauernhaus Strawberry Farmhouse Ale

Carolina Bauernhaus Strawberry Farmhouse Ale debuts on Saturday, March 18th.

The rye malt based American wild ale was fermented in Pinot Noir barrels using the house mixed culture. (Comprised of all that SouthYeast Labs goodness.) Then fresh strawberries were blended in, and the beer and aged for a full 10 months in the barrels.

We recently tried this on draft at the brewery, and were blown away. If you love fresh strawberries in a nice tart sour ale, you’ve found your beer. The strawberries taste the juiciest on the vine, with a touch of red wine in the finish. 40% of our tab was spent just on this beer.

Our dark saison was brewed using regional rye malt, then fermented & aged in Pinot Noir barrels with our native yeast blend. Over two pounds of locally harvested strawberries were blended in & the ale aged for 10 months in the barrels. This rustic saison has a huge strawberry nose and flavor notes underscored by an earthy rye spice.

Carolina Bauernhaus Strawberry Farmhouse Ale will be available in 750 milliliter bottles when the brewery opens on Saturday, March 18th.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Strawberries. Wine Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Debut: 3/18/17

Pie Beer: Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb

Not Your Mom's Strawberry Rhubarb

Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb is another future “flavored” addition to Small Town Brewery’s lineup.

This is actually the second in a line split. The brewery made industry news with the release of Not Your Father’s Root Beer – an alcoholic root beer. Shortly thereafter came Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale. In June, Not Your Father’s Cream Ale expanded the lineup.

The line split we are referring to is the addition of a “motherly” line of beers titled “Not Your Mom’s” that will begin with Not Your Mom’s Apple Pie.

Soon – Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb, another pie flavored beer brewed with strawberry, rhubarb, cinnamon and madagascar vanilla beans will join the lineup.

This beer is the perfect balance of sweet and tart with strawberry and rhubarb juices, Madagascar vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. Just like Mom’s fresh pie, every sip takes you home.

Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb will be a 12 ounce bottle and draft release. Small Town has not announced this release.

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer (w/ Strawberry, Rhubarb, Cinnamon, Vanilla Beans.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: TBA
