Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 27 starting at noon for the Crooked Spur Tree-To-Table Festival and Fish Fry at Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill. The festive event will showcase Crooked Spur’s popular maple syrup in both a special Stable Craft ale and cider as well in the food for the event.
According to Stable Craft Brewing owner, Craig Nargi, “With the cancellation of this year’s Highland Maple Festival, farms like Crooked Spur have been negatively impacted, so we wanted to bring a bit of Highland and Bath County to Stable Craft Brewing for a fun, socially-distanced outdoor event. We’re looking forward to welcoming Donnie Bowers of Crooked Spur Farm and featuring his Hickory and Dandelion syrups as well as the farm’s GMO stone crimson red grits in our beer, cider and food for the festival.”
The food for the event will feature a local cornmeal fish fry with a Crooked Spur Dandelion syrup, remoulade and hickory syrup and coleslaw with a special side of Red Butcher grits. The Red Butcher Grits are stone-ground from a heritage, open-pollinated, non-GMO crimson red dent corn that was introduced to the settlers in Virginia by the Native Americans in the 1840’s.
The event will also showcase a special Crooked Spur Dandelion Blonde Ale: 5% ABV, which is crowd-pleasing, light bodied beer featuring Dandelion syrup. In addition, cider lovers will enjoy a special Crooked Spur Hickory Cider: 6% ABV. The cider features Stable Craft Brewing’s base cider with addition of a touch of Crooked Spur Hickory syrup.
Stable Craft Brewing’s rural location offers acres of open farmland with multiple covered and uncovered outdoor locations to keep guests physically distant while enjoying craft beer, cider, wine and food. Several other safety measures have been implemented to provide guests with a safe and fun experience while complying with Virginia’s Governor Northam’s guidelines.
