On Saturday, April 29, 2023, The Ale Apothecary along with Brian Yaeger present Tree Beer Fest with two sessions – Noon – 3:00pm and 4:00-7:00pm. The fest will feature over one doze tree beers, each made with ingredients foraged from West Coast forests and beyond. Ingredients include spruce tips, fir tips, juniper berries, bark, lichen, and even tree-dwelling mushrooms.
