Silver, 2017 US Beer Open
Named in honor of Wynn Dinnsen, one of North Carolina's leading proponents of the native paw paw. We get nearly all of our paw paw fruit from Dinnsen's orchard, located in "Deep Chatham" (the rural, rolling hills of Chatham County).
We brew this Belgian-style Tripel with over 100 pounds of local paw paws per batch. Paw paws, the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States, taste and smell like a combination of mango and banana custard, and this beer is no exception. The fruity, tropical aroma gives away to complex and mild spice, finishing with a warm, sweeter mouthfeel.
