CBoTB-Falling Branch Brewery-2019 Update!

I stopped by Falling Branch Brewery Wednesday afternoon and spent some time with Falling Branch Founder Alex Galbreath, Head Brewer Grant Pfeiffer and Full-Time Brewer Mike LaHatte.  The four of us met in Falling Branch’s historic and wonderfully restored barn and taproom then walked downstairs to the brewery’s patio and sat down at one of their picnic tables to talk about the brewery and their beer.

I asked Alex Galbreath about the brewery’s growth.

A family farm with a large family of beers!  Grant Pfeiffer poured four different Falling Branch beers for tasting.  First up, Hermit, an American IPA.

I loved it!  The second beer was Wild Hunt, a Belgian Quad.  Wild Hunt was created by Full-Time Brewer Mike LaHatte.

Delicious!  Beer number three was a Belgian-Style Sour Ale with blackberries.  Grant Pfeiffer describes Valkyrie.

The final beer for the afternoon was Thief and The Moon, a Russian Imperial Stout.  Mike LaHatte explains how the beer was created.

If you’ve never been to Falling Branch Brewery, a great day to visit is next Friday, July 19th.  Falling Branch hosts many events all year long and next Friday, it’s Christmas in July: a fundraiser for Santa Claus Anonymous, featuring music, an Ugly T-Shirt Contest, a food truck, and, of course, lots of good Falling Branch beer!

Cheers!
