About Haw River Farmhouse Ales:
Here at Haw River Farmhouse Ales, we're crafting special brews steeped in Belgian tradition, but elevated by local creativity. Full of flavor and native ingredients, we believe beer is more than just something you drink. It's an experience meant to be shared with those around you. It's about community. And that's ingrained in our Southern roots, which is is why we source as many local ingredients as possible.
From barley and wild yeast to honey and fruit, our neighbors are part of our beer. They're proud of that, and so are we. And fresh ingredients on brewday means better tasting beer for everyone.
We will have one very special Sunday Supper this month to raise money for OASIS NC. OASIS NC is a non-profit in New Hanover County that provides services and supports for children with autism and their families. We have several paintings on display by the students at Oasis that will be available via Ebay auctions April 20-30th.
