The folks from Freedom Farms and North Country Brewing Co. raise a toast to their newest venture, the North Country Corn Crib Taproom!
For many years, “farm to table” dining has introduced passionate foodies and casual diners alike to some of the best food in their regions, from produce and dairy to meat and fish. Now, North Country Brewing Co. and Freedom Farms are teaming up to introduce a new concept to western PA: farm to beer!
Starting July 8th, you can visit the new North Country Corn Crib Taproom at Freedom Farms in Verona, PA to celebrate sustainable beer and local beverages. Their grand opening weekend kicks off on the 8th and lasts through Sunday the 10th, and you’ll be able to enjoy delicious food from the Freedom Farms Kitchen while you sip your drinks.
Both businesses prioritize ethical sourcing for their produce and beer, so this partnership represents North Country Brewing Co. and Freedom Farm’s commitment to sustainable and local ingredients and production.
“We decided it would be fun to collaborate with a community-driven mover and shaker like Freedom Farms,” said Patrick Morris, assistant director of operations at North Country Brewing Co. in a statement. “No pun intended, but it’s a ‘natural’ fit in our wheelhouse since we both produce quality products for consumption from natural environments.”
The finishing touches are placed in the North Country Corn Crib Taproom ahead of its opening weekend on July 8-10.
So, what exactly is on tap? Visitors can enjoy North Country’s popular YaJagoff! beer for just $3 at the Corn Crib Taproom, as well as exclusive and limited releases and some of their classic brews. You can also purchase PA-made wine and spirits at the taproom. Soon, you may even be able to enjoy a fresh brew made with hops grown on the farm just outside the taproom!
However, the Corn Crib Taproom isn’t just a sampling space. It is also partnered with the Freedom Farms Farmers Market and Kitchen, where visitors can enjoy farm-to-fork meals that feature produce grown on the farm or can purchase takeout meals and farm-fresh ingredients to enjoy in their own kitchens.
The space itself is created with reclaimed wood from trees that fall near the farm and is also located within walking distance from Freedom Farm’s sandwich shop and greenhouse, which Morris says will allow visitors to “walk and be surrounded by the produce and ingredients that make up what they are eating and drinking.”
Starting July 8th, the North Country Corn Crib Taproom at Freedom Farms will be open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM–10 PM, on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 AM–11 PM, and on Sundays from 11 AM–9 PM.
