Throwback Brewery is taking their concept of “beeroir” to the next level, and making a limited production Farmer’s Stout and Porter Series called “Unafraid of the Dark.” The series will consist of six unique dark beers, each featuring a different locally grown or produced ingredient. Subscriptions to “Unafraid of the Dark” are available through the brewery. Throwback will also be selling subscriptions and gift certificates this Saturday, December 3rd, at the Winter Farmers’ Market at the Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford [note addendum]:
Winters in New England can be long, dark, and cold. One of our favorite ways to keep warm on these chilly nights is to sit in front of a roaring fire with a pint of full-bodied beer. That’s why we are excited to introduce our Unafraid of the Dark – Farmers’ Stout & Porter Series! Starting the first week in January, we will begin releasing a unique batch of dark beer every two weeks, until just about the end of March. Each beer will feature an ingredient grown at a local farm, or, in one case, an ingredient made by a local organic business. We’ll have six in total, so hopefully that gives you something to look forward to when you’re shoveling out this winter!
Here are four of the six beers we plan to make:
- Wake Robin Farm Chocolate Ginger Stout
- White Heron Chai Porter
- Meadow’s Mirth Fennel Flower Stout
- Brookford Farm Hidatsa Squash Porter
We will be announcing the remaining two beers once we finish some testing. While we can’t tell you exactly what they are now, we can tell you that all the beers will be made with the freshest of local ingredients we can find, and will have just the right balance of flavor and drinkability. And, I can also tell you, that we are experimenting with the extra tasty bacon from New Roots Farm with one of our existing porters. We also are still tinkering with the bourbon barrel. Read more…
