I was talking to a local Chef, and he metioned this beer to me Fullsteam From beer made of sweet potatoes to a beer named Hogwash, this brewery in Durham, North Carolina is inspired by the agricultural and culinary traditions of the South.

Our mission is to craft a distinctly Southern beer style using local farmed goods, heirloom grains, and Southern botanicals. Like what, you wonder? We’re making beer with sweet potatoes, corn grits, summer basil, and malted barley house-smoked over hickory. Other successful “plow to pint” experiments to-date include beer brewed with scuppernong grapes, persimmon, paw paw, rhubarb and more.

I have not had a chance to taste the brews but if anyone out there has, please leave a comment.
