500th Brew Day!!!

June 30, 2020

𝟓𝟎𝟎𝐭𝐡 𝐁𝐑𝐄𝐖 𝐃𝐀𝐘!!!

Major milestone for our little brewery. To commemorate it, we brewed one of our favorite beers, an Orval style Belgian Pale Ale. With one of our favorite people, legendary Belgian beer travel guide & writer “Big” Mike Moore.

Using the actual Trappist breweries yeast, this beer was first fermented in one of our open tanks then dry-hopped with copious amounts of the French Strisselspalt Hop. Now it’s in our warm tank to duplicate the process used by the Monk’s of Abbaye Notre-Dame d’Orval. Look for a release date later this week.
