Our brewery of the month for December is going to be the new kids on the block, Haw River Farmhouse Ales. They just opened up in Saxapahaw (between Chapel Hill and Greensboro), and are already cranking out some delicious brews. To ring in the holiday month, we decided that we needed to really do something special, so what better way than to revive the Festivus celebration!?!
A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to brew with the good folks at Mystery Brewing Company in Hillsborough, where we brewed up a Triple Ginger Tripel that will be on tap when we open the doors. Yesterday, we continued with our collaboration series by heading out to Saxapahaw to what is (I believe) North Carolina's NEWEST craft brewery, Haw River Farmhouse Ales. The quaint little town of Saxapahaw has some fantastic attractions, including The Eddy Pub, the General Store, and now it's own 10-barrel brewery.
