“Farm to Trail Ale” Local, Historic Craft Beer Available Now

“Farm To Trail Ale” Local, Historic Craft Beer Available Now

Celebrate the Pioneer Valley’s farming heritage with the rebirth of a historic craft beer that will support conservation of our farms and forests!

Beer begins with the land: healthy farm soils produce quality grains that make a great brew. Our new “Farm to Trail Ale” is a unique Roggenbier style of rye ale brewed by Abandoned Building Brewery in Easthampton, using a historic recipe created by Beerology in Northampton, and made from local rye and barley malted by Valley Malt in Hadley. Watch this video of our brewing day!

Through this special collaboration, our historic brew will only be available for a limited time. Abandoned Building Brewery is generously donating a portion of the proceeds from every pint or can sold to support Kestrel’s work to conserve the Valley you love, from the farm to the trail.

Learn more about the collaboration and the beer.

Farm to Trail Ale is now being sold at a variety of local retail stores, bars, and restaurants throughout the Valley. See the list of retailers below. Farm to Trail Ale is currently available on tap at Riff’s Joint Restaurant in Easthampton, and at Abandoned Building Brewery. We’ll be adding to this list as new locations become available.

Check back here for upcoming events at Abandoned Building Brewery and other locations to celebrate the farmland that makes a great beer possible!
