Like most of you, we are deeply saddened seeing the destruction that Hurricane Harvey has wrought on south eastern Texas. Our heart goes out to those displaced and those who have lost everything in the storm’s relentless rains. For the rest of the week, until we close on Sunday, we will donate 10% of our taproom sales to Farm Aid’s Family Farm Disaster Relief Fund, to aid in the recovery of farmers who have lost their livelihoods to Harvey. Farmers are intimately tied to our climate in ways most of us are shielded from, we must have their back in times of crisis. We encourage you to donate if you are able.
– Eric, Andrew, and Will
We are super excited to announce a new project in partnership with Triangle Land Conservancy –
Beers From Here is a series of foraging walks in Triangle Land Conservancy preserves, free and open to the public. On each walk, we will learn about responsible and safe foraging and collect ingredients to be used in a unique beer inspired by the walk. Steel String is one of 4 Triangle craft beverage producers participating, the others include Mystery Brewing Company, Fullsteam Brewery, and Chatham Cider Works. Each producer will donate a percentage of the sales from their foraged beverage directly to TLC to support their mission of protecting and promoting community stewardship of our natural habitat.
Our walk is scheduled for Saturday, September 16th from 2-4pm at Brumley Forest in Chapel Hill. Registration will be required and space on the walks is limited.
For a complete schedule of the walks check out our FB event page. #ncbeer #craftbeer #beersfromhere #foraging

Big Mon and Big Moon. We’re open at 4!
Today we bottled this years batch of Shady Grove Raspberry Sour Red. This mixed culture red ale spends over half a year in French red wine barrels before being refermented on heaps of NC raspberries resulting in a sublime raspberry jam sour with moderate acidity and a touch of funk. We’ll let it bottle condition until perfection, but we hope for an early October release!#ncbeer #craftbeer #sourbeer
