|Former dairy barn now a brewery|
David Cancio, who is doing the marketing work for the company, says "the base beer for the line is aged over nine months on leaf hops and then a young ale is blended in before a second dry hop process is applied, creating an exceptionally flavorful aromatics brand."
The line consists of Gravity Wagon Double IPA (8.5%), Bessie’s Cream Ale (5%) made with corn, to be followed by a new IP and a German lager.
Butternuts also is producing new artwork for its canned beer line, including its Pork Slap Pale Ale and Moo Thunder Stout.
The brewery was established in 2005 on a 120-acre farm in the Butternut Valley. Brewing is conducted in a renovated dairy barn, usin g water from an on-site spring plus a variety of natural ingredients in creating American-style farmhouse ales with German, English and Belgian influences.
Butternuts is located at 4021 State Highway 51 in Garratscville, north of Oneonta. Phone: 607-263-5070.
