East of Elon is Back from Summer Vacation

We're back and ready to get rolling with another brew season. Tonight, August 15th at 6pm we'll be tapping 2 kegs that were brewed this summer. The first is a Honey Brown Ale which is expected to have a smooth, sweet brown ale tone with excellent refinement. This ale has been aged an extra 2 months to help develop a perfect blend of flavors.

Our second brew to be tapped tonight will be the legendary Saison. This cousin to our very popular Single Hop Best Bitter is lovingly classified as a summer "lawn-mower" beer. That means that it's crisp, clean and slightly bitter taste is perfectly balanced to cool you off and quench your thirst after a hard afternoon of working outside. This brew has also been aged for an extra month, but not for any reason other than that we were on vacation and were not around to tap it sooner.

Finally, tonights culinary features are Jucy Lucy Buffalo Burgers (a unique twist on a Minnesota original, the Jucy Lucy) and fresh local vegetables grilled up in Country Boys Num Num Sauce (produced in Durham, NC). Everyone is welcome to attend tonight at the house starting at 6pm.
