A crisp, refreshing lager brewed with two hundred 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 Carolina’s most prized crop.
Enjoy our 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, including the Durham Farmer’s Market. 5.5% ABV.

Cybercat (5172) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Taps clear amber with a typical buff head. Aroma features malt and fresh sweet potato notes. Flavor continues the tasty sweet potato, and ups the malt a bit while adding honey and ginger hints. Body and fizz are fair. Carve room for one.

Solid brew, not to exciting but a little differently. Nice crisp lager base, slightly sweet leaning with malty and sweet potato flavor and nose.

Can. Pours light brown with a thin white head. leaves some lacing in the glass. A fair amount of sugar on the nose. Very sweet on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not particularly compelling.

chinchill (4337) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2016
16 oz can served in a lager glass. Oct. 2015 canning date (stamp on bottom of can). Pours with a slightly hazy, deep amber body topped by a short but durable and creamy head. Full sheets of lacing are left on the glass with each tip. Lightly sweet with clear evidence of adjuncts that I probably wouldn’t identify as sweet potatoes without foreknowledge. An unexpected but acceptable tartness. Feel: medium+ soft carbonation that seems just right for this medium bodied brew.

Travlr (21675) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Draft. Hazy golden amber color. Aroma of earthy lager. Taste is earthy as well. It works.

22 oz. Pours golden orange, clear, medium off-white lacing. Some traditional lager aromas of grass, resin, caramel, and bread. Taste is medium sweet. Medium-light body, mildly sticky texture, ave carbonation, light bitterness and sweetness in a refreshing finish. I really enjoyed this lager and the infusion of sweet potatoes.
