Our esteemed brewer (and Many Faces alumnus) Austin Bethea took the lead on this South African-style pale lager. Emancipation is inspired by Castle Lager, whose style was the first recorded style from Africa (around 1658).

This is a crisp, clean, German-inspired lager brewed with North Carolina, domestic, and German malts, sweetened with a touch of Riverbend Cumberland corn, and lightly bittered with South African hops. The perfect beer for any outdoor Juneteeth celebration or gathering.

Austin is our first Many Faces alumnus, but certainly not our last!
