We have added a couple of new happenings to our EVENTS page! Just in case you wanted to plan ahead…


Alibi Ale Works has released Hüell Melon Saison. This oak-fermented, mixed-fermentation saison features 100% German-grown, extra-awesome Hüell Melon hops. A unique hop combines with wheat/oats/rye and the house blend of saison and brett yeast to create a fruit salad of flavors like honeydew melon, freeze-dried strawberry, pear, banana, with a dry/funky/peppery finish. Complex, crushable and very unique. 4.7% ABV.

Show Tree Brewing just brewed and released, homebrewer, Mike Thicke’s, Best of Show Winner  from the Thirsty Boy Competition held at Just Brew It!. The beer is Triple Deke Triple Berry Sour Ale! Brewed with Raspberry, Black Berry and Marion Berry. It’s a tart and refreshing delight. Available at Just Brew It and the Shoe Tree tasting room. 7% ABV.
