The Apothecary is Fullsteam’s series of mad science — radical, farm-focused brewing not bound to tradition or to style. Quirky, experimental and (mostly) seasonal beers brewed with Southern harvests.
|HOGWASH hickory-smoked brown porterBacon beer! We house-smoke malted barley over hickory wood, imparting a sweet, subtle smoke to our hickory-smoked brown porter. Depending on your comfort level with smoked beers, you may find Hogwash subtle or overwhelming. Try it with North Carolina barbecue for some smoke-on-smoke action, or go for the Trifecta of Awesome: bacon, beer, and chocolate! Availability: YEAR-ROUND, mostly. 5.5% ABV|
Scuppernong sparkling ale
A highly-carbonated, cloudy white beer with a surprisingly dry hint of scuppernong grapes. Perfect for a late afternoon. A local wheat and scuppernong blend that is 100% naturally fermented. Premiered at 2008 Southern Foodways Alliance Sympoium in Oxford, Mississippi. 5.0% ABV
Otto the Heretic
A Fullsteam experiment honoring Otto Lilenthal. Still in labworks. “Opfer mussen gebracht werden.”
A Fullsteam truly local experiment — a beer made exclusively from ingredients 300 miles or less from Durham, North Carolina. Still in labworks, and more of an aspiration than an immediate reality. Our dream is to have Fullsteam Southern Lager evolve into a 300 Mile beer.
Deus Ex Machina!
A “local ag” homebrew collaboration. At the tavern, our plan is to have a dedicated tap to collaboration ales between Fullsteam and the area’s amazing homebrewers. Details soon!
