Backwoods Brewing Company Beer
The star of the show at the Backwoods Brewing Company is, of course, craft beer! You can discover both year-round and seasonal brews on tap during your visit. The Backwoods Brewing Copperline Amber is a favorite year-round amber ale with a balanced finish and subtle notes of orange and spices among malt. The Ridge Fun Stout with oatmeal, chocolate malt, and roasted barley is another delicious year-round brew, while the Logyard IPA is a dry-hopped pine, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, and melon variety that you will love. Seasonally, the Backwoods Brewing Blueberry Wheat beer available from April until August is the Goldilocks of fruit beers. Meanwhile, the Pecan Pie Porter, available from September through December, blends notes of caramel, vanilla, and chocolate with subtle pecan for a sweet treat.
Backwoods Brewing Company Pub Fare
The best pair for a good craft beer is some delicious pub fare. At the Backwoods Brewing Company, you will discover some great satisfying plates. Start off with a baked pretzel with cheese dip or housemade roasted red pepper hummus platter with pita. Try the BLT on focaccia bread or The Reuben on Russian rye for a tasty grilled sandwich. Or, indulge in a freshly tossed, hand-rolled pizza! Varieties include the Backwoods BBQ Chicken with green peppers, red onions, and smoked mozzarella. A vegetarian classic is the Tree Hugger with spinach, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, tomatoes, and white sauce. If you’re ravenous after a day of hiking and exploring, then the Hungry Logger should do the trick, featuring pepperoni, sausage, olives, Canadian bacon, onions, peppers, and mushrooms.
After Brews and Food, Walk Back to Your Cabin
After a delicious, fun night out at Backwoods Brewing Company, walk the two blocks back to your Carson Ridge cabin! Settle in for the evening, soaking away your tensions in your jetted spa tub, enjoying sunset views from your private porch, or curling up in your comfortable handcrafted wood bed.
