We visited Burnt Timber Brewing and Tavern this past September after hiking in the area. They opened this location in September of 2017. They have been brewing since 2015, but previously had just been distributing wholesale with no location to visit.
This is a 24 seat brewpub. A brewpub is basically a brewery that serves a full food menu. They brew in the basement and use a 1 barrel system, which is pretty small. That’s only 31 gallons of beer per batch.
They serve full pours as well as flights. We got 2 flights so we could try them all, and over lapped on a few samples.
Busty Farmhouse Blonde
ale with peaches and apricots 7%
A very strong Belgian taste, that stood out. Mark got a little bit of apricot flavor, Megan got more peach flavor, but mostly that belgian yeast flavor.
Wit Mountain Wit
wit with orange peel and coriander 4.5%
A very, very light beer with a hint of coriander.
Always Summer Saison
Key Lime inspired farmhouse ale 6.5%
This seemed to have more of a bitter lime flavor, or maybe too much lime, we did not like it. It could be that Key Lime gives such a different flavor than the lime we are used to.
vanilla cream session mead 5%
Very clear and very vanilla. The flavor was pretty straight forward and tasted like a vanilla cream mead.
Forest Fire Red
dry hopped red ale 5%
Light bodied red, malty and a touch sweet as a red should be, with a little extra flavor, from the dry hop we assume.
original ipa 6.5%
A super opaque beer, smells super fruity. It is super light in body, no malt character or mouthfeel really, but is followed up by a nice, fruity hop profile. Pretty good ipa.
They have a small but varied menu with options. We just
ordered nachos because it was the middle of the afternoon.
