The Casks

Haw River Farmhouse Ales
Cotton Pickin' Farmhouse IPA. Made with a blend of American 2-row, Continental pilsner, and a few specialty malts, hopped liberally with Nugget, Columbus and Citra hops, and fermented using our house Belgian yeast, with just a little something special added at the end for the funk you expect from a farmhouse beer. Specs are 82IBU and 8.4%ABV.

Steel String Brewery
Session Pale Ale: This is an everyday drinker with a West Coast twist: not quite as bitter as many pale ales, this lightly colored beer is hop forward without being overwhelming, and is dry hopped with New Zealand Motueka, to give it a striking citrus nose. And, at 4.0% ABV, you can have a couple and still hit all the right notes.

Four Saints Brewing Company
Stout One (6.3% ABV): Aptly named, Stout One was our first venture as a brewing company. The combination of malts, roasted barley, and rolled oats builds the simple foundation of what a stout should be – chocolaty, sweet, smoky, full-bodied. The conversion from simple to complex begins with earthy Fuggles hops and California Ale yeast accentuation. Charred whiskey oak and full Madagascar vanilla beans complete the ascension from earthy to ethereal, and adds the final assurance Stout One (and Four Saints Brewing Company) was meant to be.

Deep River Brewing
Twisted River Wit- A traditional Belgian Witbier with a twist. The esters provided by the Belgian yeast strain weave seamlessly with the citrus notes imparted by the addition of sweet orange peel and coriander. For this cask we added Sorachi Ace hops for aroma, and topped it off with some fresh lemon zest and lemongrass from Blue Sky Farms in Wendell, NC
3.2 SRM 4.7% ABV 16.2 IBU

Sub Rosa Brewing
Root Beer Porter, a malt-forward, seal brown beer brewed with classic root beer ingredients including wintergreen and licorice, fermented by a traditional British ale yeast strain, and casked with vanilla beans and oak.

Fortnight Brewing Co.
Classic Session Ale: The original cask beer, this real ale is low in alcohol but high in flavor, a crisp refreshing beer that fits any occasion. Brewed with English 2-row, crystal malts and a touch of biscuit malt for a complex, bready aroma. Hopped with Fuggles and Golding hops to balance it perfectly for all day sipping. 32 IBUs and 3.9% ABV

Bonus Cask!
Ever had a Breakfast IPA? Wanna meet Firkinstein? Curious to try the first ever (that we know of, at least) 6-way collaboration beer by a handful of not-yet-open NC breweries?

 Pints for Prostates
Pints for Prostates is a grassroots campaign that uses the universal language of beer to reach men with an important health message. Founded by prostate cancer survivor Rick Lyke in 2008, the campaign raises awareness among men about the need for regular health screenings and PSA testing by making appearances at beer festivals, social networking and pro bono advertising.

Pints for Prostates has registered as a 501(c)3 charity and 100% of all funds raised by the group go to fighting prostate cancer and assisting men with the disease. Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, a 501(c)3 charity that works to support, educate and advocate for men with prostate cancer and their families, is a recipient of Pints for Prostates financial support.
