Celebrate this year's Mid-Autumn Festival with mooncakes & special beer releases!

Celebrate this year's Mid-Autumn Festival with us in the tasting room on Saturday, September 22nd from Noon-10pm with specialty beer releases and mooncakes (until supplies last) again!

The Mid-Autumn festival is a celebration of the successful harvest season and for families to get together to watch the moon, a symbol of harmony and unity.

Specialty Beer Releases for the day:

Lotus Seed Amber Ale – 5.3% ABV, 24 IBU – Brewed with Lotus seed paste to celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. Lotus seed paste is caramelized for an extended period of time adding a uniquely sharp, chocolate and raisin character and a rich mouthfeel to the base amber ale.
Peanut allergy alert: Lotus seed paste is cooked with peanut oil.

Tea-Smoked Helles Lager – 5.0% ABV, 22 IBU – Our house specialty Rauch Helles is infused with Chinese smoked black tea (lapsang souchong). The biscuit and grain notes of the base beer are complimented by the tea’s smoky pine and sweet whiskey flavors.

Mijiaya Historic Chinese Beer – 5.8% ABV, 2 IBU – Named after the 5,000 year-old Mijiaya archaeological site in Shaanxi, Northern China. We brewed this special Chinese New Year release based on the starch and grains found in various brewing vessels excavated from the dig site. Brewed with barley, Job’s tears, millet, Chinese squash, lily flowers, and yam, the resulting beer is flowery, light, and clean.

Mango Black Tea Sour – 5.6% ABV, 6 IBU – Market Spice’s Mango Tea infused into our blonde sour base ale. The Mango Tea is a mango-flavored, double-fermented Hunan dark tea, known for its sweet, floral, and lightly earthy notes
