The Beer News

Here are this week’s news and events happening in the Charlotte, North Carolina area!

  • Wednesday, June 19th. 2x Peach Sour Preview at Salud! Salud Beer Shop. 5 pm-8 pm. You’re invited to an EXCLUSIVE first look at two of our most exciting fruited sours yet! Be the first to try this year’s Springs Farm Peach Sour and the first-ever Big Red Peach Sour (see details below.) It’s all going down this Wednesday, June 19 at Salud in NoDa starting at 5pm!

    This all leads up to our double bottle release and Peach Party this Saturday, June 22nd from 12-2pm! Both bottles will be available for purchase starting then, plus we’ll have some live music, peach treats from Springs Farm and Button Macarons, and even a Peach Bake Off.

    The Springs Farm Peach // 7% ABV
    A beer near and dear to Fort Mill’s hearts, this peach sour proudly features 500 pounds of local Springs Farm peaches added in secondary fermentation. We aged this beauty in neutral wine barrels with a mixed culture of Belgian and Brett yeast for nine months, giving the beer a winey quality that slowly unveils itself as the palate adjusts.
    $18 including tax, 500ml. No limit!

    Big Red Peach Sour // 7% ABV
    Our base golden sour was aged in our Italian Chianti wine cask for 7 months. Featuring 250 pounds of “big red” peaches from Springs Farm in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
    $18 including tax, 500ml. No limit!

    Finally, we’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to Salud for hosting this special event!! We look forward to seeing everyone there!
