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.


  1. Hey guys! I am a home brewer south of Mebane. I am a member of Battleground Brewers guild and we are having a American Homebrewers Association sanctioned competition on Saturday October 16 in Greensboro. It's not too late to enter. We are looking for experienced judges and stewards (no experience required). This is a great way to learn about the different styles and to taste some great beers (and yes a few not so great beers). If you have any questions you can visit our web site: and check out the Skirmish in the Triad link on the home page. Or you can email me at abarbutojr a t gmail dot com
    I would like to join you guys some Sunday.

  2. How could someone interested in joining you brew crew contact you. I am a Elon resident interested in beerology 101. I already have a masters in consumeology.
