WORKERS’ COMPENSATION: Southern Social Beers
Fullsteam’s Workers’ Compensation beers are our year-round, easy-drinking Southern ales and lagers. Beers you could drink a few of in the course of an evening, without denting your pocketbook…or your head.
Sometimes you don’t want the earth to be shattered. You just want a beer.
|“Complex in its simplicity, this is a great everyday session beer.”
– Menuism, 15 Beers To Try Before You DieCall it “Southern Lager” or even “Lager” if you like, but we simply call this beer “Fullsteam.” Our eponymous beer is quaffable yet complex, particularly for a lager. Caramel in color, with a woodsy aroma and biscuity malts. 5.3% ABV
|North Carolina is the largest U.S. producer of sweet potatoes. In our quest to work with local Southern ingredients as much as possible, the humble sweet potato is an obvious choice. Perhaps less obvious: our decision to avoid cloying spices that would only serve to mask the savory-yet-delicate flavors. Why “Carver?” It’s our small tribute to the amazing Southern environmental scientist and farmer, Doctor George Washington Carver. While he may be better known for his work with peanuts, Carver was also passionate about the sweet potato. 250 pounds of local sweet potatoes per batch (one-third of the base fermentables). 4.5% ABV|
|A tribute to the Southern tradition of an RC Cola and a MoonPie. We brew Working Man’s Lunch beer with biscuity malts, vanilla, and chocolate nibs from Raleigh’s own Escazu Artisan Chocolates. We get a little zany and brew with a German Weizen (Weihenstephan) yeast strain to impart estery banana notes. The dark beer for ’round the year! 5.5% ABV|
