For our next entry in the Plow to Pint series, we sourced Scuppernongs from our friends at Benjamin Vineyards. Scuppernongs are a type of Muscadine -the only grape native to the South. The vineyard sits just outside of Saxapahaw along the Haw River and the sandy loam soil provides an ideal growing environment for both Scuppernongs and Muscadines.
We also brought in bright Lemon Verbena and tart Roselle Hibiscus from Maple Springs Farms, a family owned and operated farm in Northwestern Orange County
All of this, combined with 100% local malt, has made for one delightful sour.
