All of the hops - Galena, Vojvodina, Southern Brewer and Southern Cross - used in this beer were grown at the University of Maryland's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources research facility in Western Maryland. This beer is part of our ongoing commitment to UMD's hops research. Because there's no better way to truly evaluate a beer than brewing with it, we craft Field Notes with hops from each year's harvest.
Brewed with fresh aronia berry juice from Distillery Lane Ciderworks, which imparts a distinct purple hue and refreshing tartness.
Nicknamed the "Brewers' Beer," this extra pale ale comes from rebrewing the mash after the monster that is our Double Dog Double IPA. The brewer on-shift that day gets to decide the hops used, so with each visit (and similar to a box of chocolates) you never know what you're going to get.
Our 2018 vintage is a robust blend of caramel malt and dark fruit sweetness. Like the fine wine it is, this beer only gets better with age.
Aged for months in oak whiskey barrels from A. Smith Bowman (a badass distillery in nearby Fredericksburg, VA), our deep and dark Gonzo gets even more mysterious with notes of vanilla and whiskey warmth. Both our 2018 and 2019 vintages are on tap now.
