Beverages will include
Craft Brew Beers
Anniversary Maibock: This malty lager is deep golden in color and medium in body. The finish holds a bold sweetness that is balanced by a subtle hop flavor and aroma. Bock-style beer is typically a lager that is often associated with the symbol of a goat.
Bock, the German word for “goat,” usually has the kick similar to that of this furry ruminant mammal. The Maibock style traditionally was produced in the winter and released in early May to celebrate the coming of spring.
Volks Weizenbock: combines the malty component of a bock bier with the tangy spiciness of the Hefe Weizen. Flavorful and robust, Volks Weizenbock is maltier than our Hefe Weizen, with extra aging to ensure extra smoothness! Volks Weizenbock: “The People’s Beer!”.
Flavorful Craft Sodas
Appalachian Root Beer: This original Root Beer is brewed with pure cane sugar, a touch of vanilla and a delightful blend of honey. Truly tastes like old fashioned, homemade root beer thanks to wholesome ingredients. Appalachian Root Beer is a caffeine and gluten free craft soda.
Appalachian White Birch Beer: This tremendously flavorful, handcrafted Birch Beer is brewed with pure cane sugar, a touch of honey and essence of birch extracts giving this soda a smooth and distinctive flavor. Appalachian Birch Beer is a caffeine and gluten-free craft soda with no artificial flavors or colors to ensure the highest quality possible.
Appalachian Ginger Beer: This Jamaican style Ginger Beer is brewed with pure Appalachian water, cane sugar and fresh ginger extract. It has an unrivaled spicy tart complexity with a nice ginger bite. Appalachian Ginger Beer is a caffeine and gluten-free craft soda.
