In-Store Tasting:
Manor Hill Brewing
with Gina Beardsley

Friday, November 9th, 5-7pm

Gina Beardsley from Manor Hill Brewing is with us to pour four of the beers they make, we hope you will enjoy them:

 

 

Located on the Marriner family's 54-acre working farm in Ellicott City, we are home to 14 acres of crops (typically corn, wheat, or soy), 2+ acres of hops, approximately 30 chickens, and more than 20 free-range angus cattle.  Our garden produces tomatoes, herbs, squash and squash blossoms, zucchini, asparagus, blackberries, blueberries, and much more that are used at our nearby restaurants (Victoria  Gastro Pub, Manor Hill Tavern, and Food Plenty)

 

Brewery operations began in June of 2015, making Manor Hill Brewing Howard County's first farm brewery.  Our head brewer uses high quality seasonal ingredients to craft hand-made beers from original and unique recipes. We believe strongly in supporting local and practicing sustainability and work to achieve these values as often as possible.

 

 

Manor Hill Brewing - PILSNER

Our take on a classic German Pilsner was created using corn grown on our very own farm. Leaf Saaz, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Triple Pearl hops provide a distinct German grassiness that is followed by a touch of grain, citrus and a clean finish.

 

Sku: 76695    |    $10.99    6pk Cans    |    ABV 5.3%    |    IBU 40 www.untappd.com    |    4.01/5 www.beeradvocate.com

Manor Hill Brewing – GRISETTE Farmhouse Ale

The Grisette is an old working-class Belgian Farmhouse style that is typically brewed with wheat. This take on the classic style is a very light and sessionable farmhouse ale with subtle hop flavor. A fluffy white head crowns this straw-colored brew. Aromas of tropical fruit and lemongrass come through on the nose. Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc hops combine to provide lots of juicy citrus fruit followed by a very dry finish.

 

Sku: 76693    |    $10.99    6pk Cans    |    ABV 4.7%    |    IBU 35 www.untappd.com    |    3.97/5 www.beeradvocate.com

Manor Hill Brewing – Indian Pale Ale

This aroma forward IPA showcases the versatile Mosaic hop. Tropical fruit, berry and citrus aromas completely dominate the nose. El Dorado and Mandarina Bavaria hops combine to round out the hop bill and display a firm hoppy backbone that is accompanied by Vienna, Flaked Oats and Pale malts for balance. A heavy dose of Mosaic in the dry hopping provides you with a juicy hop punch that finishes slightly dry.

 

Sku: 76694    |    $10.99    6pk Cans    |    ABV 6.8%    |    IBU 76 www.untappd.com    |    3.97/5 www.beeradvocate.com

Manor Hill Brewing - Porter

There really isn't anything better than a pint of porter during the cold winter months. This one pours a jet-black body with a tan head. Aromas and flavors of roasted chocolate and coffee dominate the experience.

 

Sku: 76860    |    $10.99    6pk Cans    |    ABV 5.5%    |    IBU N/A    |    3.87/5 www.untappd.com

 

 

 

OUR HOPS:

We have over 2 acres of hops planted on the farm and currently have the following varieties
CASCADE
THE quintessential American hop. Massive clean grapefruit quality. A signature hop in many American beers and has stood the test of time since the early 70's.
NUGGET
A very versatile hop. Super clean bitterness with a nice herbal aroma with a little bit of floral and resinous notes mixed in.
CHINOOK
One of the more aggressive, yet pleasant hops around. Very intense spiciness with some nice pine and resinous qualities. All around fantastic hop.
CENTENNIAL
We have always heard these billed as "Super Cascades" and never really got it. They have a definite citrus overtone, but it leans more towards lemon than grapefruit to us. There is a nice, soft floral note to these with a little bit of spice and a clean, but substantial bitterness.
