To celebrate the centennial of our Corn Crib Barn that now serves as the brewhouse, mill room, and open ferment loft for Wheatland Spring, we made a Farmhouse Lager. Inspired by Virginia and the region’s agricultural heritage, this is a beer we imagine could have been brewed here at the farm a hundred years ago. We draw from ingredients on our farm, surroundings, and agricultural region that were available to farmers back then. This includes a blend of Estate-grown Wheat, Landrace Tuxpeño Corn, Virginia 6-Row, and 2-Row Barley. Classic and contemporary German hops provide an aromatic profile that hints at wildflower and lemongrass.
