Homestead Beer Co. will celebrate its sixth anniversary Saturday (Feb. 16) with a party and the release of a special brew.
"The first six years have gone really well," co-founder Kevin Atkinson said. "We're just having a big party to celebrate."
The celebration begins at noon at the Heath brewery and will include live music and food, along with the release of Phantom Cowboy, a milk stout aged in Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill barrels.
The limited-edition beer is a blend of both barrels and has been aging for about a year. It will be available on draft and sold in 22-ounce bottles for $15.
"It's just a delicious, smooth milk stout," Atkinson said.
Homestead wants to devote more energy to barrel-aging beers moving forward, he said. The brewery also wants to concentrate on producing consistent, high-quality versions of fan favorites such as Tenpenny Amber Ale, Galactic Heroes IPA and Snake Oil, he said.
There also has been discussion about potentially opening a satellite taproom.
