Tart in Bloom

Flower Sour

Tart / Funk


We're thrilled to once again collaborate with the North Carolina Museum of Art, truly a state treasure.

Art in Bloom (March 16-20, 2022) is one of the museum's most popular exhibits, and for good reason: it's a resplendent showcase by floral designers who interpret works of art in the Museum collection.

Leading up to the exhibit at our downtown tavern -- and on Friday 3/18 and Saturday 3/19 at the NCMA West Building courtyard -- we'll be showcasing three floral-infused "flower sours."

We're calling it Tart in Bloom, a beer sampling featuring three floral infusions in a tart beer base, brewed with innovative and the Lallemand WildBrew Philly Sour™ strain, which mimics the style of a kettle sour, but with more nuance and depth.

Sample the three infusions, or enjoy a pint of your favorite:

  1. Elderflower Ginger (with @normsfarms),
  2. Lychee Calendula, and
  3. Rose Hibiscus (with @maplespringgardens).

We hope to see you at Art in Bloom, presented by PNC, or at the Fullsteam Tavern.

If you miss this opportunity to try the three floral infusions -- don't worry! We'll be brewing the tart beer base throughout the spring and summer and offering different herb, fruit, and floral additions throughout the growing season.
