CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, we took the basic model of a farm CSA and applied it to the way we offer exciting new limited-release, speciality craft beer styles to members.
Typically, members pay up front for a portion (share) of the harvested produce, eggs, meat, etc. Risk and reward is shared equally among members and growers. Benefits include high-quality fresh food and a direct relationship with farm.
We incorporated the CSA concept to provide true craft beer enthusiasts an opportunity to experience unique, limited-release beers in a wide range of styles. The breadth of styles can range from Imperial Stouts, to a variety of Pale Ales, or Saison styles that feature seasonal produce. The CSA is a great way to be involved with the craft beer community and have a close, working relationship with the brewery and other craft beer aficionados.
Shares are sold in 6-month increments: January - June and July - December. A full share includes 12 bombers each month; a half share includes 6 bombers each month, and a quarter share includes 3 bombers per month. The program is favorably priced at less than $7 per bomber for premium craft beers that often would be sold at a retail cost of as much as $20 per bomber. Click here for pricing info.
Members receive updates about the beer and notifications as to when to pick up their share at the new taproom in Wellington!
CSA BEERS FOR JANUARY TO JUNE INCLUDE:
JANUARY: FLAPJACK MAPLE PORTER
An homage to childhood memories of coming in from a cold winter morning to the smell of flapjacks and maple syrup. The sweet malt, maple and bready notes of this winter porter will warm your heart.
FEBRUARY: CHOCOLATE CHERRY STOUT
Is this too obvious for Valentine’s Day? We found a third wheel when we added cherry to an already perfect couple. Lots of sweetness, but enough dark undertones to make it mysterious.
MARCH: GREEN & GOLD* (GREEN TEA GOLDEN STRONG ALE)
Go Rams! This beer pairs our infamous Belgian Golden Strong Ale with green tea from our friends and frequent partners in crime, Celestial Seasonings. Expect a clean, crisp, high alcohol beer with the fresh tartness that comes with green tea.
APRIL: SWEET N’ SOUR ALE
Spring brings the promise of things new and different. Our one-of-a-kind Sweet n’ Sour beer balances the tart, acidic notes of a sour beer with the sweetness reminiscent of Easter candy.
MAY: GERMAN PILSNER
Our take on a classic. Surprisingly complex, this beer has a clean malt, hop, and yeast character. Yes, this one follows reinheitsgebot.
JUNE: AGAVE LIME GOSE Agave and lime brighten this slightly salty delight to create an unforgettably refreshing beer with the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
HERE IS THE LINE UP FOR JULY - DECEMBER 2019
July: Red, Wit, and Blueberry:
A blueberry infused wheat beer brewed with both red and white wheat. A light, easy drinking wheat beer with a balanced touch of fruit.
August: Pepe’s Pils (Pilsner with habanero):
A traditional Bohemian style pilsner featuring clean malt and Noble hop character. A light habanero aroma and taste add a layer of complexity and a touch of heat.
September: Farmhouse Ale w/seasonal herbs:
A light Belgian style ale brewed with traditional ingredients and process. An addition of locally harvested herbs during the boil adds a layer of depth and complexity to an already flavorful beer.
October: New England style Red Pale:
Hazy, hoppy, and delicious, this red ale has the best of both worlds. A complex malt backbone and a fruity and floral hop profile make this an interesting and balanced beer.
November: Butternut Squash Ale:
This is a true to style English Brown ale with roasted butternut squash added to the mash and boil. We source our squash from local growers. Don’t miss our anti- pumpkin harvest beer!
December: Milk and Cookies Stout:
This beer started as a straight forward milk stout and we kept adding layers of flavors until we arrived at beer the Santa himself will love.
