Our chance to taste the fruits of our labor is here! Come out to the Sulphur Creek Farm this Friday night, Oct 5th, for a square dance party featuring the Bells Bend Stringband, and the first taste of the beer we made with hops grown on the farm - "Bells Bend Preservation Ale". The square dance starts at 8 PM and tickets are on sale at www.bellsbendfarms.com.
We are also bottling about 1000 bottles of the Bells Bend Preservation Ale this year, in big 750 ml bottles, featuring artwork from James Osborne, a local artist and friend of the farm. The label is beautiful, featuring one of the whooping cranes that have been seen nesting in the Bells Bend area. The beer is a light-bodied pale ale, with a clean citrusy aroma from the locally-grown hops. We will be releasing the bottles for sale on Saturday, Oct 6th, at the brewery as part of our 9th birthday party. The bottles will be $5 each, with the proceeds benefiting conservation efforts in the "Beaman Park to Bells Bend Conservation Corridor". The bottles will go on sale at 4 PM Saturday Oct 6th at the brewery.
