NOW SERVING KOMBUCHA

Now serving Lavender Lemonade Kombucha on tap from Neu Kombucha in Farmington. Kombucha is a fermented tea that is a nutrient-rich tonic, as well as a refreshing beverage which dates back 2000 years with Asian origins.

Jennie started making Kombucha at the Cacao Tree in Royal Oak in 2010. “I was just making 12oz cups with no bottling involved.” She then began educating herself on the in’s and out’s of the ferment process and soon after met and fell in love with her husband, Julius. He was the spark that was needed to start bottling and get Neu Kombucha off the ground and into their own facility in Farmington. Like all fermented foods and drinks, Neu Kombucha can contain trace amounts of naturally produced alcohol, about 0.3% to 0.5% depending on the length of fermentation time and other factors, and often adds to its effervescent quality.

Neu Kombucha flavors are handcrafted, GMO free, vegan, organic, and made with love in small batches.

Support the local business of Downtown Farmington. Come into the FBC and try some. We are open Tuesday through Sunday.

WHEN SIZE MATTERS AT THE FARMINGTON BREWING COMPANY

When size matters we now offer 32 ounce howlers for sale at FBC.

What’s a howler? It is a 32 ounce reusable and refillable glass bottle used to transport fresh beer from the tap at our brewery. We fill it with the brew of your choice then seal it up. You then take it on a journey to your location to share, hoard, or keep to enjoy.  After bottling in our brewery the beer remains fresh for about a week, but after opening, the beer should be consumed within a few days to preserve it’s quality and overall experience.

A howler is half the size of a normal growler or about 2 full pints worth of delicious refreshing beer. You can pick one up with our Farmington Brewing Company logo and get a matching 64 ounce growler while you’re at it. You can fill up a howler with one of our beers on tap for typically half the price of a growler.

The smaller size offers endless craft beer possibilities. They are perfect for sharing and trying a few different brews at once. You can take one or two to a friend’s house to share your favorite FBC brews. Depending on the occasion size matters, so choose a 32oz howler or a larger 64oz growler.

We love our own FBC logo howlers and growlers but we also fill any of your own that you bring in. So come in to pick one up or bring your own to fill today! We’re open every day of the week except Mondays.

The Kölsch and Belgian Golden Strong are also on tap. We have a full compliment of darks coming soon. The Milk Stout and Dry Stout are on d…eck as well as our newest beer, a Coffee Stout.
