Haw River Beneath the Feet of Orion Review

Haw River Beneath the Feet of Orion Review | Saxapahaw | Scoop.it
One beer that epitomizes the local agriculture focus in Haw River’s Beneath the Feet of Orion. This particular beverage is an imperial rye saison brewed with organic red core carrots that were grown right in Saxapahaw. In addition to the root veggies, there’s local fresh ginger root and toasted cumin seeds as well. With an 8.2% ABV, this saison packs more of a punch than the usual takes on the farmhouse style, too.
