Today we have another installment in Fullsteam Brewery’s plow-to-pint series, the Fearrington Winter coffee pecan porter. In the previous installment, I discussed Fullsteam’s commitment to using locally grown produce in their limited edition brews. Fearrington Winter upholds that commitment. Inspired by southern pecans and nearby Pittsboro’s Fearrington Village coffee beans, Fearrington Winter embodies the dark roastiness and toastiness of a porter without being overly bitter.

Deep in the heart of Durham lies a brewery with a sensibility for locality and seasonality. Fullsteam Brewery has released an ale brewed with locally foraged persimmon fruit and have christened it First Frost.
IBU: Unavailable but Minimal
The advent of football season and the slowly dropping mercury signals to us all that the days of summer are sadly over.
