Carver Sweet Potato Lager brewed by Fullsteam Brewery

Carver Sweet Potato Lager brewed by Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC

Carver Sweet Potato Lager is a crisp, refreshing lager brewed with 200 pounds of North Carolina sweet potatoes per batch and zero ounces of pie spice. Savory and earth. Deliciously smooth. Carver celebrates the subtle flavor of North Carolinaís most prized crop. Enjoy this tribute to a true Southern visionary, Dr. George Washington Carver. While he may be better known for his work with peanuts, Dr. Carver was also passionate about the sweet potato. Availability: year-round, 22oz bombers at our tavern and select markets. 5.5% ABV.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Have had Carver a few times whether by growler or, in this instance, a draft at the brewpub - the beer is a deep maple amber in color, served in a tall lager style glass with a low cap of carbonation. Opens with aromatic biscuity malts, toasty, with lots of caramelization and an earthy sweet potato sugar. Earthy, grassy hops. Moderate in body and carbonation. Flavors of toasted biscuity malts and caramel, the sweet potatoes come through as an earthy sweetness but not exactly distinct. Lots of rich, heavy flavor. Earthy hops with a hint of toast and light bitter to the finish. A nice lager, slightly sweet for my taste, but enjoyably full flavored and I think the use of sweet potatoes is both well done and a benefit to the beer.

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.
