Today we are drinking Darius the Giant, a sour Flanders Red, out of Haw River Farmhouse Ales in Saxapahaw. “Darius the Giant; Aged for 12 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels on 50 pounds per barrel of whole Michigan Balaton tart cherries, our sour Flanders Red is a layered experience of tart dark fruit and vanilla-laced boozy oak. It’s an unblended rabbit punch to the taste buds you’ll want to savor forever.” Haw River crafts “special brews steeped in Belgian tradition”, but adds a touch of local creativity. They believe that beer Full of flavor and native ingredients is more than just something you drink – it’s an experience meant to be shared with those around you. Community is ingrained in their Southern roots, which is why they source as many local ingredients as possible.
