4 pack cans


a brown ale brewed with locally-grown and house-roasted chestnuts 

Oh the wonder of the elusive chestnut. You’ve likely heard about them roasting over open fires but what do you really know about them? Once known as the “redwood of the east”, the American chestnut was said to have represented 1 of 4 trees growing in Appalachian forests. Historically an important food source, the American chestnut was decimated in a few short decades by the unintentional introduction of a parasitic blight. Commonly referred to as the largest ecological disaster, the American chestnut is all but gone and forgotten in its once important Appalachian home. 

Mashed with local barley malt along with a delicate blend of our favorite caramel and chocolate malts. Steeped on a massive amount of locally grown chestnuts, processed in-house and roasted in our wood-fired oven. Fermented with our preferred house ale yeast for a decidedly dry yet full bodied finish. One of our favorite seasonal offerings, the chestnut has a certain seasonable charm with flavors that pair perfectly with the caramel and toffee-forward backbone of this rich brown ale. Please enjoy with a chill in the air, cozied up next to a fire. 

Though brewed with the variety of chestnut that is essentially responsible for the demise of the American chestnut, our goal is to bring awareness to its story. Now, through the works of folks like the American Chestnut Foundation, we are seeing some glimpses of the return of the American chestnut.
