I love the names of some of New York State’s craft beers, like this one: “Farmer’s Tan” from Southern Tier Brewing Company of Lakewood, New York. This is a seasonal beer available through spring and summer. Check it out.

Here’s what Southern Tier Brewing’s “Farmer’s Tan” is all about, according to

“We specially crafted Farmer’s Tan to be the beer you enjoy on those long summer days. At 4.6% abv, it’s one of our lightest, with a smooth body and easy finish. We carefully limited the ingredients to two types of hops and two types of malts for a perfectly balanced, “sessional” India Pale Ale.

ABOUT THE NAME: Pardon any confusion on the recycled name as this version of Farmer’s Tan is indeed a brand new beer.

AVAILABILITY: Spring/summmer / 12oz (6pk and 24 bottle cases) / ½ keg, 1/6 keg

BOTTLE CONDITIONED: “For bottle conditioning, a small amount of sugar and yeast is added to the beer so that a small fermentation occurs in each bottle after packaging. Bottle conditioning does result in a small amount of sediment in each bottle. If you’d rather not see it floating around in your glass, be sure to not agitate the bottle before serving, pour carefully, and leave a few milliliters in the bottom of the bottle at the end of the pour.”


STYLE: Session India Pale Ale


ABV: 4.6%

FERMENTATION: Ale yeast, two varieties of hops, two types of malts

COLOR: Pale Amber

FLAVOR: Light hops, refreshing.


GLASS: pint glass
