A Note on This Beer
If you’re the kind of craft fan who’s always in search of new breweries, new flavors, and distinctive styles, you’ll want to pay attention. Today, we’ve got our very first beer from North Carolina’s Fonta Flora Brewery.
Beers from this crew rarely leave the state, but you still might’ve heard of them — it seems like the entire craft beer universe is head over heels for Fonta Flora!
- Craft Beer & Brewing named them a Breakout Brewer.
- They’re one of Thrillist’s 32 Hottest Breweries in America!
- Their beers have made ‘Best Of’ lists on Bloomberg, Gear Patrol, Hop Culture, and Forbes, just to name a few.
These brewers made a name for themselves by crafting interesting styles with unique, locally sourced ingredients, and today’s Bread Tree Chestnut Brown Ale is no exception.
Chestnuts used to be HUGE in the region. In fact, one out of every 4 trees in Appalachia was a chestnut before they were devastated by blight. Now, the trees are making a comeback, and Fonta Flora celebrates the return each year with this winter release!
Every sip overflows with flavors of toffee and caramel, punctuated with notes of locally harvested, house-roasted chestnuts! It’s basically a delicious tin of nut brittle, but with a cheek-warming 5.8% ABV!
If you’re looking for a brew that’ll take your tastebuds on an adventure, this Brown Ale checks all the boxes! Bread Tree highlights a rarely seen ingredient, it’s a style we barely ever get to share, and it comes from a celebrated brewery that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Time to try something new!
