Calendar of Events for Shooting Creek Brewery

Greetings and Salutations Shooting Creek devotees!

Just an update on upcoming events and happenings around the brewery. We've been feverishly readying ourselves for the indelible mark we're going to make on the Virginia beer scene this summer. So we've now got 2 batches of beer under our belts. Our first batch of Buffalo Brown is conditioning in our bright tank and our Rebel Ale is in its primary stage of fermentation. Bottling should start in a couple of weeks. Translation- you'll be able to find us on the shelf at the grocery store by the end of next month! We're greatly looking forward to your feedback.

Details on our forthcoming CSA are still being worked out. I'll get you a launch date as soon as I can.
