Raised Grain Brewing Beer

Raised Grain Brewing offers twelve rotating taps from a selection of over twenty beers the brewery has developed. They also offer select canned beers available at their taproom and retailers in the area. Like other breweries, be sure to check the website for what currently is available on tap before visiting.

The canned varieties are ideal for getting to taste before you purchase a six-pack in the tasting room. Current offerings include the Guitar City Gold, a refreshing lager-style beer, the Ah Ha Pale Ale, and the Black Walnut Coffee Stout, which is brewed with award-winning Colombian coffee.

Also available in cans is the award-winning Paradocs Red IPA, the Naked Threesome IPA, a hazy-style IPA, and the Black Walnut Belgian Imperial Stout, which features Belgian sugar candy to produce a unique blend of bitter and sweet on the palate. Since it’s currently summer, Raised Grain Brewing is also offering a canned version of their Summer Vice Hefeweizen, a crisp German wheat beer.

Throughout the year, you will also find other beers on rotating tap at the taproom. While all of them are certainly worth a try, make sure to not miss out on the Six Stone Scotch Ale, the Spring City Saison, a farmhouse ale, and the Boxcar’s English Amber, with notes of malt and yeast. The beer at Raised Frain Brewing is nothing short of impressive, so consider a series of sampling sizes in order to try as many as responsibly possible.
