Like the new green growth of the coastal forests, Spruce Budd Ale is a reminder that spring is here. A local favorite with a faithful following, this beer is brewed with nothing more than hand-harvested spruce tips and pilsner malt. Almost the entire brewery (and marketing team) went out one Friday morning and harvested the hundreds of pounds of spruce tips needed to brew this beer, making it the most locally sourced beer you can get. Those tips went from tree, to kettle, to four-packs in about two weeks. It tastes just like a sprucy dance through the forest.
