Their amazing operation is not open to the public, so here is your chance to see first-hand how they cellar-ferment their amazing small-batch beers, brewed with ingredients from their farm, including ginger, almonds, cherries, rhubarb, and gooseberries, in a facility run on solar-power.

Delicious, fresh, local refreshments will be provided to replenish the body, cool the summer heat, and facilitate getting to know each other. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
