We are pleased to announce that Dothan’s new craft brewery, Folklore Brewery and Meadery, is partnering with ProktoberQue to provide free samples of a couple of their hand-crafted beers Friday evening at the event. We are planning on the beer tasting being in the Man Cave, between the air-conditioned Biergarten and the competition teams, but may move the sampling into the Biergarten in the event of excessive heat or inclement weather. The sampling is scheduled for 6-8pm. A valid ID is required to sample or purchase beer, regardless of age (PER Alabama Beverage Control law). No ID, no beer.
Information on Folklore, from their web page:
Besides the 4 of us, we have another family to take care of…Honey Bees! We currently have 5 bee hives and hope to continue to grow that number over the coming years! Beekeeping is an integral part of taking responsibility over the health and life cycle of the honey bee population in the US and the world. We only harvest the excess honey the bees can produce so they have enough honey during winter!
Folklore is a story of 15 years of brewing experience and obsessive compulsive fermentation genius!
We are currently in the final stages of licensing and build out. As our primary equipment is currently being built, we hope to be up and running by August this year. Draft beer will be on tap in Dothan, AL as of September 2013. Soon after we will be offering high gravity specialty beers and braggot’s. Braggot is Beer with honey and is usually quite strong. Next spring we anticipate offering Mead and small batch Estate Mead produced from our own hives on our farm!
