American Promise

Double IPA with paw paws

Juicy

We love working with the enigmatic, curious, and fragile paw paw fruit.

North America's largest native tree fruit, paw paws grow in the wild, thriving in areas with wet soil and sunny canopies. Think riverbanks and streams.

We get most of our fruit from a paw paw grower in Chatham County. While foraging for paw paws is great fun, it's less reliable -- and the critters often get to them before us humans are up to collect the fallen fruit.

As for the beer, we married the dank, curious fruit with locally farmed and malted barley and fruity, tropical hops like El Dorado and Mosaic. Hazy, but without lactose. It *looks* like a paw paw beer. It tastes like the Beautiful South.

We encourage you to seek and explore the land for native paw paw fruit. To taste a ripe one if you can.

On the name: American Promise is an aspiration. A quest. Difficult to come by. A labor of love. But persistence, determination, and grit reveal the promise. Is it about a rare and unusual native fruit, or the American dream of a respite for the huddled masses? You decide. American Promise is a mirror, and we its reflection.
