TOWN OF MARCY — Woodland Farm Brewery, 6002 Trenton Road, will celebrate its third anniversary in business with a weekend of celebrations starting Friday, Jan. 4. The celebration will begin on Jan. 4 with specials planned throughout the weekend and ending on Sunday, Jan. 6.
To honor all their customers, Woodland is bringing back a couple of the first beers they brewed that many have been asking for, including Sagey and Syrup Sucker. The weekend will also include the release of new barrel aged beers.
On Friday, they’re kicking off the weekend with the return of Sagey and Syrup Sucker. Sagey is a farmhouse ale conditioned on just enough dried sage to add another layer of herbal goodness to an easy drinking saison.
They’ll also be releasing Syrup Sucker again, an imperial brown ale fermented with local maple syrup from Tibbitts Maple in New Hartford. In honor of the unwavering support, they’ll be selling crowlers of these beers for only $10 all day.
On Saturday, Woodland will unveil its anniversary barrel-aged beers. This year they have Bourbon Batch 3 and Rye Batch 3.
Both of these wee-heavys spent time in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels from Black Button Distilling. Aged for over a year in the barrels, the strong malt and chocolate character of the wee-heavy was enhanced with barrel flavors.
With Bourbon Batch 3, customers can expect additonal notes of vanilla, smooth bourbon, and oak. The Rye Batch 3 adds a touch of rye spice, oak, and leather. Fifty bottles of each will be available for sale when they open at 11 a.m.
Customers will also be able to get a sneak peak at the base of the Wee-Heavy for next year’s anniversary.
The weekend will wrap up on Sunday with brunch at 10 a.m., followed at 2 p.m. by the area’s premier raucous string band, Remsen Social Club. The boys were there for the first anniversary party. As always, Woodland’s Sunday morning brunch food menu features such offerings as Heidelberg french toast paninis, waffles, Black Button Bourbon Cream infused whip cream, and more. They also offer brunch cocktails, beermosas, coffee, and beer. Drink specials will be available throughout the day.
The brewery provides locally handcrafted beer with ingredients grown in New York. More information available at woodlandbeer.com
