Available for one night only, Wednesday July 17th, Ellwood Thompson’s, Hardywood, and Origins Farm joined forces to craft a summer brew with locally sourced beet and basil.
Honestly, I’ve been on the fence on about this beer since I first learned of it. While I love basil, beets have never a favorite at least those canned purple ones of my youth. My more recent experiences with beets of different colors have been well received.
When I inquired about the base beer style for the brew, I really expected Hardywood to say this was their Belgian Wit recipe used to make Virginia Blackberry. To my surprise, I was informed the base beer is an IPA making me even more curious about how these flavors will work.
Learn the origins of this beer directly from its creators Brian Nelson, Hardywood’s Head Brewer, and Alistar Harris, owner Origins Farm. Remember this beer is only available for one night and only available at Ellwood Thompson’s. Only $5 gets you in the door and some light appetizers and $3 per 8oz pour at the event.
