Trail Magic Ale™
Every year thousands of ambitious people set out to hike the Appalachian Trail, the Continental Divide Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail from end to end. For many, it's a lifelong dream, for many it's an exercise in willpower, for many it's a way to find oneself. But for all who attempt a thru hike, it's a journey filled with unexpected challenges, perils, surprises and for some...Trail Magic. Known along these trails, Trail Magic is a random act of kindness, often from a stranger, meant to encourage and relieve thru hikers during their journey.
Like the random acts of kindness along way, our Trail Magic Ale™ manifests itself in many ways. Blaze a trail to our brewery for these limited releases in March, June and October each year.
The beer that inspired the series and started the journey, a Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout with local Sorghum Syrup and Wild Flower Honey.
Light, refreshing but packed full of flavor, the Lemongrass Imperial India Pale ale offers some spicy relief from the heat of summer.
Homage to the Imperial that got us started. This version has stepped up to Maker's Mark barrels and a higher gravity, but keeps it's sorghum and wildflower honey roots.
Brewed year around and distributed throughout North Carolina. These craft beers are our most popular concoctions.
