Just in time for the holidays, we’re bringing you a brand new limited release that we hope will satisfy your urge for a wintery, holiday brew! This beer was brewed as a small batch by our brewer Alex and quickly became a staff favorite! Imagine a smooth blonde stout with white chocolate and nutmeg and you’ll be imagining Rare Form! Rare Form is unique, seasonally fitting, and DELICIOUS!

    Cans and draft will release on 12/19/19 at 3p at the taproom and a limited amount will hit wholesale the following week!

    Rare Form is a delightful confection-like stout with notes of white chocolate and nutmeg for spicy aromatics and a pleasant creaminess on the palate. This smooth ale is rich and golden, and will have you doing double takes!
