Brewing 1803 Fat Ox Ale at Custom BrewCrafters

This week was historic for us for a completely new reason!

For the past week, we have been working with our partner, Custom BrewCrafters to brew the VERY FIRST REAL BATCH of 1803 FAT OX ALE that will be avaliable for purchase at the museum!!! We could not be more excited.

The beer is brewed using the same ingredients and process that we will be using at the W. Grieve Brewery in the village. It will be a cloudy ale that would have been typical of the 19th century. Custom BrewCrafters were instrumental in helping us refine the process that we'll be using to brew beer in the Village. Along with being very educational for us, it has also been a lot of fun!

Tuesday morning started with a trip to the brewery to help out!
