Fullsteam Brewery’s Tree-to-Sea is aptly named, sourcing spruce tips from North Carolina’s mountains and sea salt from the Outer Banks. Barley from the mountains plus hops, coriander, and wheat from the state’s piedmont area also go into this beer, which benefits Pints for Prostates and will be available through The Rare Beer Club.
“We literally drove from one end of the state to the other to gather ingredients for this distinctly North Carolina beer,” said Fullsteam’s founder Sean Lilly Wilson in a press release. “This is the first Gose Fullsteam has made and the pine, salt and sour come together for a unique taste of place — the great state of North Carolina.”
Tree-to-Sea will be packaged in 750 mL bottles. To get your hands on one, you should:
1. Visit Fullsteam in Durham on Oct. 11 from 4-6 p.m., when the brewery will release the beer and host a Pints for Prostates awareness event.
2. Join The Rare Beer Club between now and Sept. 15.
The beer will also be poured at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting VI on Oct. 3. This event is put on by Pints for Prostates, which “reaches men through the universal language of beer to encourage them to take charge of their health.”
