AUG 2012 Events & Open Tap Room Hours

August 2012 schedule for the BrewFarm: AUG 5 we're hosting Dinner on the Farm http://t.co/fXjAjT20 and the following weekend AUG 11 we'll be at the Great Taste in Madison. We're holding open Tap Room weekends on AUG 18 & 19 and then SEP 1 & 2 (and possibly the 3rd - yes, Labor Day - bring your grill!) if there's enough interest.

I will be there on Labor Day. Will you have a list of beers you will be serving? I am looking for an IPA with a lot of hops. See you soon!

What will your open Tap Room hours be on Sat Aug 18th? Also will you have tours of your brewery?

Hammer: I typically don't have a list of the beers until just before we're open. And I don't "do" IPAs, as one of my mottos is, "Why brew what everybody else is brewing?" I do brew some hoppy beers but they definitely much more balanced than many of the typical IPAs out there.
Tap Room hours are from 3-7 each day. Tours (somewhat of an overstatement...) are available on request. It's pretty small operation but I give the nickel tour!

First-timer here, coming on Saturday. So pumped to finally get out there! Can we buy growlers to bring home? Thanks, Dave!!!

Question - how long do your growlers stay fresh if unopened?

Farmer Dave said...

I give them +/- a month. I CO2 purge, fill and purge again before capping. I've had a customer keep one eight months and it held up very well. I've had others the were 4+ months that were really tasty. But like fresh bread, fresh beer is best consumed sooner than later. Keep it cool and dark - heat, light and oxygen are beer's biggest enemies!
