Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin is brewed with a classic saison yeast, Virginia-grown sugar pumpkins from Grandma’s Pumpkins (Midlothian, VA), whole nutmeg, clove and allspice from C.F. Sauer (Richmond, VA), and fresh ginger root from Casselmonte Farms (Powhatan, VA). This farmhouse ale presents a soft mouthfeel with balanced, rustic fall flavors.
Hardywood Cuvée Gold artfully blends the elegance of wine country with the gentle and balanced characteristics of a traditional Belgian-style Golden Ale.

White Wine Barrel-Aged Belgian-Style Tripel with Peaches
ABV: 9% Bitterness: 25 IBU
Hardywood Cuvée Peach is artfully blended by the barrel master from small batches of Peach Tripel aged in white wine barrels, at varying levels of maturation, from three months to more than a year. The resulting beer is beautifully complex with yeast-derived stone fruit esters that harmonize with juicy peach undertones. This sparkling refresher offers a pleasantly dry finish with the slightest hint of vanilla from the toasted French oak barrels.
Rum Barrel-Aged Belgian-Style Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale
ABV: 12.3% Bitterness: 21 IBU
Hardywood Rum Barrel Pumpkin combines the nostalgic flavors and aromas of autumn with a soul-warming, blackstrap molasses-laced finish that can only be achieved through months of maturation in Caribbean dark rum barrels. Pleasantly mellow up front, Hardywood Rum Barrel Pumpkin offers a crescendo of pumpkin pie spices that are emboldened by the barrel aging process, and finishes with subtly sweet, lingering notes of brown sugar.
Hardywood Bourbon Cru is brewed in the fashion of Belgium’s revered monastic breweries. Bourbon Cru displays a rich mahogany hue with a medium body and brilliant clarity after months of barrel aging. The maturity and melding of flavors brought on by the freshly drained bourbon whiskey barrels lends an extraordinary sense of harmony to Bourbon Cru. Almond, toffee and oaky vanilla give way to notes of dark cherries and raisins. Subtle hints of plum are greeted by caramel overtones for a smooth, robust and warming finish.

Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adopts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon Barrel GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.
A dessert beer to the core, our Raspberry Stout is truly a feat in decadence.

After months of patient maturation in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, our Raspberry Stout is finished on Madagascar vanilla beans revealing a confluence of smooth, rich dark chocolate, ripe red raspberries, and real vanilla.
