The Bartram Forager Series Hike is part 1 of 2 events, culminating in a Bartram Forager Series Celebration & Fundraiser at Lazy Hiker Brewing on October 19th.
This foraging hike will work similar to our Trailhead Tuesday events. We’ll meet at 1pm at the Macon County Public Library parking lot and split up into groups. Each group will head out to gather as much of the ingredients as they can or that can be reasonably gathered! These fresh fall ingredients will then be delivered to the brewmasters at Lazy Hiker and added to a beer to age and impart their wonderful flavors for a week or so.
Final ingredients will be communicated out shortly, but the shortlist is pawpaws, black walnuts, honey locust pods, and persimmons. If you have a location or source for these items, please let us know – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll plan to meet back up at Lazy Hiker Brewing with our foraged ingredients and share our forager forays over a cold beverage at 4pm.
Everyone is welcome to come back for the celebration evening on the 19th for Open Mic Night, likely a raffle and/or silent auction, and of course the special Bartram Beer Release! Proceeds will benefit Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy programs. We’ll also have some of our Bartram Trail Conservancy merch available including pint and bourbon glasses, t-shirts, patches, and maps.
Technically, this is the second beer in the series, the first being the special Bartram Brew for this summer’s trail reroute celebration. The first beer was yummy, so we have set a high bar for this one!
