The William Root House Museum & Garden is excited to announce a collection of beers crafted with hops, fruit, and herbs grown in the historic Root House Garden. Created by Red Hare Brewing Co., this limited release of beers will only be available during a special beer tasting at the Root House on September 27th. The oldest home in downtown Marietta, the c. 1845 William Root House is one of the only wood frame structures in town to survive the Civil War. The home was owned by Marietta’s first druggist, William Root. William grew many medicinal plants in his garden, including hops, which would have been used to assist with sleeplessness and anxiety.
2019 BEER LIST
Pumpkin Spiced Brown Ale – 6.8% ABV
Brewed with pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg this Winter Seasonal Brown Ale will put you in the mood for Fall.
Green Apple Brut Rosé – 6.5% ABV
Brewed with Green Apples, this is a super bubbly delight that finishes dry for both beer and wine aficionados alike. Not your typical sour rosé, instead this brut adds a sparkling effervescence that compliments the tart bitterness up front, thanks to the green apple trees on the property.
Centennial IPA - 6.7% ABV
Brewed with Centennial and Simcoe hops, this IPA is a clean west coast IPA with pungent piney and slightly citrus aromas. Munich and wheat malts balance out the bitterness and hints of floral. Wet hops from the Root House Garden were harvested and put into the kettle in the last few minutes for a late hop flavor with a big hoppy punch.
Lemon Balm Lager - 5.25% ABV
Brewed as a light German Helles, this refreshing lager has hints of biscuity malts and big notes of lemon citrus stemming from the fresh lemon balm from the Root House Garden. The finish is clean with subtle hints of mint.
