Big Elm Brewing Demo

Friday, April 25, 4-6 pm – Join us for a tasting of Big Elm Beers – purchase Big Elm on sale (sale goes all day on April 25 and is for one day only) – and contribute toward Big Elm’s campaign to help the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter. How’s that for a win-win situation? 

The Big Elm Brewery, located in Sheffield, Mass., is owned and operated by Bill & Christine Heaton, the former owners of Pittsfield BrewWorks. Big Elm makes three beers:

Big Elm IPA – A handcrafted IPA that is generously hopped, subtly assertive, and decidedly balanced. Big Elm uses some of the finest Pacific Northwest hops, select American and German malts and a classic American West Coast ale yeast to breath life into this superb beer.

413 Farmhouse Ale – Big Elm’s take on the classic farmhouse ales of Belgium. A rustic, golden ale brewed with choice barley, wheat malt, and local honey from Bear Meadow Apiary.  They also add a little love in the kettle with whole flower chamomile, lemon zest, and Brazilian pink peppercorn from Himalaya Salt in Sheffield. 

Gerry Dog Stout – Big Elm’s rich and satisfying Oatmeal Stout is made with choice American and English barley, rolled oats, herbal American hops and good vibes from brewery mascot Gerry. This deep and dark beverage transcends what you thought about stout! 

Big Elm six-packs will be $1 off all day on April 25. Between April 1 and June 30, 1% of all cans sold of Big Elm Beer will be donated to the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter in Pittsfield, MA.
