We’ve had a few new beers make their debut at The Goat recently, and these newcomers are definitely worth a try!
JOLLY PUMPKIN ARTISAN ALES
“Calabaza Blanca” White Ale $14
Origin: Dexter, Michigan, USA
This is for those of us who want something more substantial than the beer flavored water that’s typically peddled with the warmer weather. The barrel aging really shows in this, but you also get the leaner citrus rind and pithy notes on the nose. And, it’s not too bitter. A touch of marzipan, clove, and honeycomb bring some balance to this dry, middleweight ale that finishes a little quickly, but with all smiles!
VICTORY BREWING COMPANY
“Helios” Farmhouse Ale $7
Origin: Downington, Pennsylvania, USA
This is a farmhouse ale that has just the right balance. The right amount of sour, the right amount of lemon peel and grass, and the right amount of funk that gives these beers their distinctive style. A little sun is good for the soul, and perhaps for the beer as well! Solid warm weather beer for the money.
“Kapuziner” Bavarian Hefeweizen $6
Origin: Kulmbach, Bavaria, Germany
Any beer that has “Hefe-Weizen must be drunk from a glass – never from the bottle” on the label must be taken seriously. Whether you agree with that statement or not [I certainly don’t blame you if you disagree] this is an awesome beer! An unmistakable hefeweizen, with loads of orange and lemon zest, clove, and cereal grains in a nicely balanced, though full flavored and full bodied brew.
“Koppi” Coffee IPA $16
Origin: De Proefbrouwerij, Belgium
They’re putting coffee in everything nowadays! You’ve seen it in porters and stouts, now get a little perk out of this IPA. Citrusy right off the bat, you can thank the extremely aromatic Citra hops for that, with the coffee really settling in once it’s in the glass. Definitely interesting, the milky, hazy orange color alone is enough to raise some eyebrows. Cheers!

In anticipation for our upcoming trunk show this weekend, allow us to introduce you to Before + Again clothing!
These pieces are bold and graphic, printed on super soft cotton in St. Louis, Missouri. No two pieces are exactly alike, and you can customize each item based on a preferred print and style.
Paired with a white jean, the t-shirts and tunics look fresh for Spring. A light sweater also makes the B + A skirts a casual option for summer. The dresses are the perfect summer staple,... Full Post >
In Our Gardens, Our Belties & Farm Happenings, The Fearrington House Inn
Summer is almost here in the South, and there is no better place to spend it than with us at The Fearrington House Inn. There are numerous gardens, flower beds, and fresh botanicals pleasing to the eye and soul scattered around the Inn. If you look through the arbors of Jenny’s Garden next to the Sun Room Patio (exclusive to Inn guests!), you can see crabapple trees lining an intimate wedding venue. Just behind that, you can spot a fenced-in herb garden, officially used by the chefs of The... Full Post >

Fearrington Events, In Our Gardens
Flowers and Mother's Day are almost a foregone conclusion, but keeping the tradition alive doesn't have to mean supermarket roses or dyed carnations. Local Farmer's Markets are exploding with floral beauty at this time of year, and putting together something as special as Mom is can be as simple as purchasing a few spectacular blooms, augmenting with fresh greenery from your own garden, and wrapping the stems with a bit of fabric ribbon to make the perfect tussie-mussie!
