-New Beers-

Illuminati Brewing Company

Illuminati brings us their inaugural beer, the refreshing Freethinkers Pale Ale. This can be found at Overflow Taps at both locations as well as their tasting room on Hammer Drive.

Structures Brewing

Fermented and conditioned in red wine barrels, Solitude, Structures’ new brew was a blend of a mixed culture saison brewed with Amarillow Bract (3/4) and 100 pounds of Golden Goose Plums from Osprey Hill Farms (1/4). You can expect “waves of minerality, citrus rind, a chive-like savory note and a subtle coconut character.”

Interesting enough to tell your friends? Do it!
