Naming our New Ale!
As we eagerly anticipate the opening of our new brewery, we are excited to share everything about it that we can with you!
After coming up with the perfect 19th century style ale, we also wanted the prefect name for our new brew!
We held a "name our beer" contest that attracted 370 people who submitted more than 1700 entries. Our winner, William Gucker, came up with the moniker 1803 Fat Ox Ale!
In addition to bragging rights at the brewery, Gucker won a a handcrafted, salt-glazed stoneware growler made by our master potter, Mark Presher as well as a family membership to the museum and 12 refills of the museum's new ale!
After this summer he should be a 1803 Fat Ox Ale expert!
The version of 1803 Fat Ox Ale, made in conjunction with Custom BrewCrafters in Honeoye will be avaliable by the glass and growler in June!
Soon we'll have a sneak peek at the new label!
