One such brewery is Swing Tree Brewing which looks to open in March 2013. Husband and wife partners Brandon and Tonya Overstreet are the force behind the operation.
The centerpiece of the Swing Tree experience is its hand crafted, artisan ales and lagers. The company looks to offer four anchor brands: Porch Swing™ Extra Pale Ale, Two Shilling™ Brown Ale, Lonely Trike™ Red Ale and our Obligatory™ IPA, and according to their website “We will also offer 4 rotating seasonals, which will be comprised of a Wheat Beer, a Dark Ale, a Beer of the Month and an IPA. All of these beers will be served at our tavern and at select local establishments.” Here’s more from the brewery:
Aside from the eight faucets of our truly unique beers, Swing Tree will also offer two traditionally prepared cask ales, which will be available exclusively at the brewery. These beers will be served directly from traditional firkins located for all to see.
Swing Tree also plans to offer spontaneously fermented beers as our Tradition Series™. These unconventional beers will be fermented using the wild yeast from the area and will take on a distinct taste touting all the flavors of the Rogue Valley. Due to the nature of the extended fermentation and blending processes, these beers will not be immediately available.
Although Swing Tree is first and foremost a craft brewery, we will also offer a modest, seasonal menu created around our house made sourdough. We will use premium ingredients to create a casual yet inviting fare to compliment our beers.
