Back in April, Westbrook and Evil Twin teamed up to present Meat Beer Fire, a gathering in Georgia complete with a bevy of cooked meets, specialty brews and … well, fire. (It’s kind of self-explanatory.) The event was designed to be showcase for heritage breeds of livestock and meat. Also, there was awesome beer. And fire.
This weekend, they’re bringing that celebration back to the Palmetto State. Westbrook is hosting a local version of MBF at the brewery this Saturday, Sept. 7, from noon to 5 p.m. All the meat comes from LJ Woods Farm in Sylvania, GA, and Bradley Taylor of Revival Foods will be cooking a whole hog as well.
On the brew tip, the latest release in Westbrook’s Bearded Farmer saison series will be available on draft and in bottles for the first time. This release, dubbed “Taylor” (as in Bradley Taylor), comes in at 6.5% and is brewed with rye, Tettanger and Pride of Ringwood hops and fermented with a blend of farmhouse saison and Brett yeasts. Other special brews will be on tap as well, including the re-release of Citrus Ninja Exchange. Both Citrus Ninja and Bearded Farmer will distributed next week.
