Heading to the Farm today after a day of rock climbing at the gym.

Sure hope the yummy Funfen Hoppen Lager is still available!  :ale:

Might want to make it to this...

Sat. July 12th - my pals who do a Podcast "Burn n Brew" about beer, cigars, and whatever else, which I did a episode with them this past Winter...are doing a on-site podcast at the Brewfarm to interview Dave.

Its gonna be a special treat for the regular B n B folks as there will be a limited amount of people who will be able to get a flight of brews, a cigar, and dinner for a low cost. Which has yet TBD...$25+ ?
Also a live band of some kind, also, yet TBD...

That part will take part before the Brewfarm is open to the public and will carry over into the regular hours of being open for the rest of the afternoon and evening.

Should be a lot of fun   :ale:  :ale: and quite interesting  :o

Made it out here today. Had a flight of all eight beers and then a glass of snappy saison. Can honestly say all eight beers were excellent. Great day to hang out outside there too. Every time i get back from there i ask myself why i dont get out there more often.

Dave said he is bringing one 5 gal. keg of Hellion to Great Taste and another to the Friday night Pre Party at Old Fashioned. I'll see what else I can find out about the brews he's bringing.
Either way, what ever Dave decides to bring, you all are gonna want to make a stop at the tent to try anything.  :ale:

If you have not been to the Brewfarm yet...
You are missing out on an adventure of beery fun and friendly people.
With Summer closing down and Fall approaching, this is the best time of year to be there.
Enjoy a beer outside in the fresh country air full of grasses and flowers.
Visit the chickens and ducks out in the field.
Tour the hillsides of land with a hike with a full glass of tasty brew in hand.
Bring a grill and have a cookout.
Or even be invited to join a huge party that are celebrating birthdays and be a part of a 25 pound feast of a crawfish boil. :thumbup:

Such a great place, where the beer is always phenomenal and the people are always super awesome!

Hellion! Wowzaa, such a dangerously drinkable and mega tasty 12% brew  :ale:

The new Brewfarm Funk V is gonna be right up some of you sour fan's valley. Deep dark pit fruits, crabapple, and burnt brown sugar notes makes for an interestingly sour experience.

Anyone who has not visited the Brewfarm and has had it as a to-do, you're gonna want to make the visit very soon. Word is that Dave is moving on to other ventures and will be putting the Brewfarm property up for sale this Fall!  :(

Dave is at GABF this weekend and will be open the weekend after.
I will be busy that weekend with the St. Paul Art Crawl.
Then the next weekend they plan to be open is Darkness weekend.
Won't be until Nov. when I can get there next...
Lets try a big TBS showing some time then.
That would be great  :thumbup:
I will be finding out more details about what is going on this weekend, hopefully by Sunday.

A short article / interview re: sale of Dave's Brewfarm.

He's looking for $500k for the whole place.  It looks like Dave has something in the works to work for some other brewery.

Yup, they went public over the weekend with the news.

I'll be heading out to see them in a few weeks for a farewell visit, which may consist of many actual visits until the place is actually sold...

Wish I had the money and the brewing talent/knowhow. This would be a great endeavor!   :yes:

From another website-

No, we are NOT closing!
We are on the market and it'll take 6-12 months before a sale transacts. And it'll be business-as-usual until that transition takes place. So there'll be plenty of opportunities to come out and sample all sorts of tasty treats.
Did someone say "Year-Old Bruiser???"
And for fans of my beers, what do you think about having greater access to them, like in those handy cans and bottles in stores near you?
I'm not going quietly into the night...

Well that's good news, hope they find a buyer though.
It'll be easier to get up there in the spring for sure.

Pretty hard business model to make work.  Hard to make much when you're only open 2-3 days a week and it's a good drive for most.  Size of the setup makes means distribution to hit a larger audience requires contract brewing or building a new, bigger brewery.

Sad to see it go though.  I'm sure I'll drop out there to check things out with whoever buys it but it certainly won't be the same nor will the beers ever be the same.

Actually...I'm fairly sure that was one of the main bigger reasons to move on, a contract Dave was looking to renew to have Matacabras and Select back out in the market like the prior year to this one, along with a series of single hop lagers fell apart when he was out bid again like the year prior.

Any word on where he may be off to?

No real word as of yet, but most likely some where in eastern WI.
