The brewery recently announced an Apple Pie Sour made with Youngman Orchards Farm Market’s delicious apples. The sour is brewed with Honeycrisp apple juice, apple puree, cinnamon sticks and vanilla bean. There’s nothing better than some locally made beer, wine or cider after a day of picking apples, so make sure you hit these amazing local spots while you’re exploring the Apple Tasting Tour!
