Sweet Virginia Series: Light as a Feather + Candy Man

September is your lucky month, because the brewers have two Sweet Virginia Series bottles for you. Both are barrel-aged, both are extremely limited, both will be available only on the coast, and both will be released on Saturday, September 30th in the Lovell Taproom.


Light as a Feather could be more aptly described as stiff as a board. This big 12% ABV wheat wine was aged for months and months and months in Four Roses Bourbon barrels. Heaping amounts of wheat create a creamy mouthfeel along with a lingering fruity sweetness. Balance that with the vanilla, oak, and heat from the barrels and this Sweet Virginia offering will lift your spirits, that’s for sure. Original artwork on the label by brewer Dave Coyne. Only 68 cases available – $12 per bottle.


Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew? The Candy Man….and the brewers at Fort George. This Belgian-style quadrupel ale was brewed with dark & clear Belgian candy sugar and a whole lot of specialty malts, wrapped in a rainbow, soaked in Pinot Noir barrels, and mixed with love to make the World taste good. The Candy Man can, and so can you on Saturday, September 30th at noon. $12 per bottle – Limit one case per customer.
