December 13th, 2015… Pizza and Beer Party at the Farm!

If success means running out of pizza, then we had a very successful day at the farm. GREAT pizza thanks to Chef Justin Nahow, GREAT beer thanks to Pull Brewing Co., GREAT weather thanks to (global warming???), and a GREAT turnout thanks to the wonderful neighbors, friends and customers of the farm who are supporting this new venture. Pizza and beer are here to stay, so stay tuned for the next time. Thanks to the good natured few who missed getting pizza but happily settled for pierogies made in the wood burning oven – works great!!!

RB BREW in conjunction with PULL BREWING now has farm brewed beer available for sale!

We now have growlers available for sale- You can refill your growler once weekly or we are happy to accommodate any schedule you want. At the moment, growlers can be refilled at the farm only, but we anticipate being able to re fill them at the Greenmarkets very very soon.

Right now we have Bradley Farm House Ale ready to go! This is an ale brewed with Belgian and New York State grains, hops, and Ray’s prize honey. Made in the Franco-Belgian style of Bier-de-Garde/Saison it has a light body, moderate alcohol, and a slightly tart finish.

Each growler is 64 ounces (roughly 4 glasses).  Price is $20 including tax, plus a $4 bottle deposit. Refill your growler when you want for $20 – right now, refills can only be done at the farm, but  very very soon we should be able to refill them at both of Ray’s Greenmarkets!
