To-Go

We proudly put rice in our beer.

Why not? It's not like it's cheaper for us. It's not a shortcut.

Sometimes the craft beer narrative is, candidly, off-base.

Good rice adds great flavor and lends a taste of place. In Tidewater, that sense of place is one of our favorite regions of the state: the Inner Banks of Eastern North Carolina. North of the boating town of Oriental is where Tidewater Grain Company farms and processes rice, barley, and triticale on 120 acres of rich, loamy lowland.

Epiphany Craft Malt takes this summertime rice harvest and malts the kernel, giving life to the germ before kilning it for brewing.

We lager the beer for several weeks to ensure a smooth, crisp bite.

Some shortcut, right?

Rice, as you know, has a complicated and tragic history in the United States. It's our obligation and opportunity to do more than just purchase local rice to support local agriculture.
