We were so excited to be featured this month in Our State magazine. The photos they published of The Stable were simply stunning and their article about the brewery and our affect on the local community was exceptionally well-written. Breweries are becoming the quintessential “third place," where people post up when they're not at work or home. We're happy and proud to be that place for so many people who live, work, or play in Historic Downtown Wilson.

We’ll be releasing a new batch of Vick’s Choice Sweet Potato Blonde Ale™ just in time for Bar-B-Que Season!

As you may know, Vick’s Choice™ and Kandagadda ISPA™, our sweet potato beers, have 120 pounds of hand-processed sweet potatoes in each batch.

We have the generous help of the Barton College kitchen in chunking and steaming these, afterwards John blends them with rice hulls to add directly to the mash. The rice hulls provide a flow path for extracting the wort during the brew.

This requirement for extra planning, logistics and labor for these brews is why we are only making them available in Wilson and adjoining counties. The sweet potato flavor is mild and balanced, designed to taste like a beer christened with sweet potato rather than a sweet potato club over the head.

For this batch, we steamed 80 pounds at Barton as normal. The other 40 were fire-roasted in our good downtown neighbor Jimmy Sink’s locally famous brick pizza oven. Jimmy is the proprietor of Creekside Creative Design.

The Master Brewer's Pintification
What’s up with IPA?
John Kater
India Pale Ale is currently the hottest style in the Craft-brew revolution. What we call an IPA today has little or no resemblance to the beers that were shipped from England to India beginning in the late 1700s. Where did today’s “love it or hate it” tongue-numbing concoction come from?
