A Very SoWa Fall
Even though we’re preeeeeetty bummed summer is technically over, we’re equally pumped to take advantage of all-things-fall. Especially the cooler weather. Which is ideal for enjoying a beer (or two, or three) at Boston’s SoWa Beer Garden. Our friends from Brattleboro, VT (Hermit Thrush!) are in Boston this weekend. If you want a chance to hang with the Hermit Thrush crew, join them at SoWa THIS Sunday, 10/20. Keep reading for what’s pouring this weekend.👇
The Facts: SoWa’s Beer Garden is open on Sundays through October at The Power Station at 540 Harrison Ave in Boston (see the map below 👇) from 11a to 4p. We’ll release the beer + cider menus each week right here and on Instagram.
Our friends from Hermit Thrush are taking over the taps at SoWa THIS Sunday (10/20). They’re bringing their deeeeeeelicious sours with them. More on that below.
Quick DL about Hermit Thrush: Friendship, big ideas, and just a pinch of brewing skills (okay, more like a barrelful) all lead to the sour-specific brainchild of Christophe Gagné and Avery Schwenk. At Hermit Thrush Brewery, they’re dedicated to concocting the best New American Sours they can dream up — and they aren’t afraid to go old-school with their style. They combine environmentally sustainable practices (like wood pellet boilers) with age-old brewing processes and a harvest of locally grown ingredients. The end result? A pucker-inducing punch to the tastebuds, and barely a dent on the planet.
What’s Pouring This Sunday (10/20)
So… what’s on tap this weekend at the Beer Garden? Hermit Thrush is bringing lots of craft goodness to SoWa!
Hermit Thrush | Sour #9 | A collaboration with Hermit Thrush x Magic Hat. Sour #9 is a perfect, pucker-inducing balance of both breweries. Gentle sour apple aromas lead the way into stone fruit, citrus and red currant before a taste bud-clenching sourness takes hold before revealing the classic, subtly sweet mysteries of #9 | 5.6% ABV
Hermit Thrush | Party Jam: Passionfruit | Fruited sour ale with passionfruit | 5.9% ABV
Hermit Thrush | Gin Barrel Saison | Vermont gin barrels held this Vermont sour sa on for months. HT’s Gin Barrel Saison features a magnificent pale saison which HT fermented and matured in gin barrels from different local distilleries to make a bright, tart, herbal, and balanced brew that out the best of both brew and barrel | 6.5% ABV
Also on tap (from fellow VT friends!):
Queen City | South End Lager | Helles Lager | 5.4% ABV
Fiddlehead | Fiddlehead IPA | A hop forward American IPA with mellow bitterness. Citrusy and Dank. Well Balanced | 6.2% ABV
