  • Wednesday, March 14th. Pilot Batch Release – Pack It Out, Robust Porter.  Triple C Brewing Company. 4 pm-9 pm. “On a continuous mission to leave the people we meet and the places we go better.” This Robust Porter features more bitter and roasted malt flavor than a brown porter, but not quite as much as a stout. Its caramel and malty sweetness are reminiscent of cocoa and in harmony with the sharp bitterness of black malt. Hop bitterness is evident. Bleu Barn Bistro has dinner covered!!
    We will be donating $1 for each beer sold this day to help Kelly reach her fundraising goal while thru-hiking the AT and Hike for Mental Health. If you can’t join us, you can donate here – https://secure.hikeformentalhealth.org/kellyat2018”
