Spruce Budd Ale Is Here!

For the love and demand of the Spruce Budd Ale, this year, we brewed even more – adding 200 lbs of Spruce tips and leaving our arms aching from the constant stabbing of the Spruce needles – a small price to pay for the sake of this much anticipated seasonal beer. With Spruce tips being full of vitamin C, this beer is incredibly good for your health* and can lead to a longer life.** With each glorious sip you are able to realize what an adventure into the woods taste like.  Grab a growler of Spruce Budd, find a some shade underneath a tree, and enjoy life.
