Working Man's Lunch brewed by Fullsteam Brewery - Durham, NC


Working Man's Lunch brewed by Fullsteam Brewery - Durham, North Carolina        

A tribute to the Southern tradition of an RC Cola and a MoonPie. We brew this beer with biscuity malts, vanilla, and chocolate nibs from Raleigh's own Escazu Artisan Chocolates. But instead of using a traditional, dry English or Scottish ale yeast, we get zany and brew with a German (Weihenstephan) yeast strain. This lightens up the beer and adds vanilla and banana notes to give it that MoonPie connection. The result is a drinkable "dark ale" that, like most of our plow-to-pint beers, doesn't fit neatly into any one particular style. Have your three martinis, Boss Man. We'll take a Working Man's Lunch. 5.6% ABV.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Poured into a standard pint glass a deep roasted chesnut brown with a tinge of ruby,a thinner beige colored head atop.Aromas of chocolate and roasted nuts really stood out,light vanilla and clove-like spice were subtle.A little sharp in the mouth but after awhile it did mellow a bit.Bitter chocolate,molasses,and vanilla flavors with light roasted nut on thepalate,a decent earthy/woody drying note in the finish.A pretty good after dinner beer,I have never had a moon pie or RC cola for that matter but I'll take their word for it.

Fullsteam Brewery
In the past few years, North Carolinaís beer selection has flourished with beers around the world: Belgian dubbels, tripels, and quads; English bitters and barleywine, German lagers. Amazing craft beer from US breweries establishing regional traditions and styles: the West Coast IPA phenomenon. Hearty Wisconsin lagers. Experimental beers from the Northeast.

But we have yet to develop a Southern craft beer identity.

Fullsteamís mission is to craft this identity. To create a distinctly Southern beer style that celebrates the culinary and agricultural heritage of the South.
