Our Family of Beers

Rusted Plow Farmhouse Saison
Brewed with Alamance County honey, pilsner, vienna and wheat malts, traditional European hops and a little wild yeast (allowing it to finish up as dry as a bone), this hazy golden Farmhouse Saison is as beautiful as it is easy to drink.

Alamance White
We've harvested a wild yeast strain from under a fig tree here in Saxapahaw, and used it to ferment one of our favorite recipes, a Belgian-style blonde ale that's just about the perfect accompaniment to a sultry summer day here in central NC.

Cotton Pickin' Farmhouse IPA
We take a Belgian-style base ale and essentially double the malt and hops, then age it on Brettanomyces and wrap it up with big Citra and Amarillo hops to provide 85IBUs and 8.2%abv of one great tasting Farmhouse India Pale Ale.
Newlin's Original Belgian-style Extra Pale
Tasty, floral hops in a drinkable Belgian-style Pale Ale? Oh yeah. A perfect balance of traditional noble hops in the boil and a host of punchy American hops in the fermenter plays beautifully with the phenolics from the yeast and sets our Belgian-style Pale Ale up to provide you with a clean, sessionable brew for a toasty summer day.

St. Benedict's Breakfast
Belgian Chocolate. Locally-roasted coffee beans and cacao nibs. Notes of toffee, raisin and fig from the Trappist yeast. A few imported specialty malts, flaked oats and a little extra love provide for a smooth, tan head atop this Belgian-style Dubbel with a slightly thicker, creamier mouthfeel than you may be accustomed to.

Sweet Tyree Sweet Tea Saison Inspired by the South's favorite refresher and brewed using only pilsner and wheat malts, flaked barley, Sorachi Ace hops, then finished with sweet Meyers lemons and dried black tea leaves (to help emphasize the bitterness and hue of a traditional southern sweet tea), our Sweet Tea Saison has been called "the quintessential summer brew".

Hiverna, a Winter Harvest Dark Saison A seasonal specialty, we use pilsner, munich and abbey malts, a little flaked oats and our Belgian Saison yeast, plus pumpkin, butternut squash, sweet potatoes and acorn squash from a host of NC farms through Eastern Carolina Organics in Pittsboro and clover honey from Graham. We also spice it just a little at the end of the boil with fresh-ground nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and allspice. Finishing just a little maltier than a traditional saison, this 7.9% abv winter warmer is a perfect accompaniment to a cold winter evening with friends. 

Wild Rye in Black
With just a hint of hibiscus, our Wild Black Saison is as dark as midnight on the Haw River. And it's a little wild too; we finish this one with Brettanomyces Claussenii, a wild yeast that provides a crisp, funky tang and a nice, dry finish. To be released soon.

Darius the Giant
A sour Flanders Red we age on Michigan tart cherries for six months and age in bourbon barrels. A note of caution: this rabbit kicks.

The Farmer's Daughter Series (Bière de Garde)
Deep in the back corner of our cellar, we've got a couple of test batches of Bière de Garde in the works. We'll let you know more when we can; for now, we're keeping these under wraps a little. To be released soon.
