Let's face it, the holidays tend to get a little... nutty. This holiday season, embrace the chaos with an ice-cold glass of the "Nut Farm" in hand. One of Silva's most recent seasonal releases, the Nut Farm is a Nitro Walnut Milk Stout sure to be the best nutty addition to your holiday. Follow up with a taste of their Rhinestone Red and you're sure to feel extra jolly. Rhinestone Red is perfect for shorter days and cooler weather with rich malts laced with Nugget and Amarillo hops. We hear it's the beer of choice for the man in the red suit. Stay tuned for the S-Shot, a smoked porter using locally smoked malts alongside German smoked malt, and the Yakima Express (Imperial IPA) - 5th Anniversary Version — scheduled for release as an early Christmas gift for beer lovers.
