Zoo Brew Launch Party

Get ready for Zoo Brew 2019! We are so thrilled to once again partner with the Great Plains Zoo and Hy-Vee to bring you a new Summer Lager for a great cause.

Following the event, the beer will be available at all seven Sioux Falls Hy-Vee stores while supplies last!

The Event: Come celebrate the release of Zoo Brew 2019 with us at Fernson Downtown on May 21st. $1 from every can sold that night will be donated to the zoo. PLUS you'll have the chance to interact with Great Plains Zoo critters while you drink your beer, as their ambassador animal program will be hanging out on our patio.

The Beer: Last year, Zoo Brew was a Kölsch, but this year, it's something new! We've designed this Summer Lager to be light, straightforward, and low-ABV to easily compliment your summer adventures.

The Collaboration: Zoo Brew is a limited release benefitting the new African Lion exhibit at the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. It's a single batch, so it won't be around long! Get your first taste at the release party, then take a pack home from Hy-Vee while supplies last.

8th - Patcher Pale Ale Release

March 15 we’re wearin’ flair at Fernson on 8th to celebrate our release of Patcher Pale Ale. Show up wearing your favorite jacket/shirt/cap with a patch on it and get $1 off your first pint! Stick around after 7:00 to enjoy the Irish stylings of Dan Mahar just in time for St. Patricks Day weekend.

The Beer:
You might remember Seed Series #019 and #026. They were like our other hazy experiments, but lower ABV, lighter in color, and brighter in taste. Those seeds grew into Patcher Pale Ale, our newest limited release. Enjoy with us at the event, and take a 4-pack home for the weekend.
