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.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap at Fullsteam. Clear light orange. Medium white foam. Wispy lace. Nose is super heavy diacetyl. Taste is heavy diacetyl, tangy lemon, huge buttered roll. Butter bomb. Almost impossible to accomplish this with a lager style. Premature kegging perhaps. Needs diacetyl rest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle. 5.5%. From a trade with jcnielsen. Thanks a lot Justin!
Clear copper colour with a small frothy white head. Sweet malt, mild bitterness, mild metal and some sweet potato notes in the aroma. The flavour is dry bitterness, malt and more dryness. Very dry flavour.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Pint at the brewery in Durham. Pours a clear amber-gold color with a small white head. Aroma of rye, earthy hops, bready malts, toast, herbs, resin, citrus, and some sweet starchiness that must be the sweet potato. Flavor of rye, herbal notes, peppery spices, bread, and dust. Thin-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a peppery but watery mouthfeel. If the body weren’t so, so light, this might have more to it, and I wish those sweet starchy notes of the aroma showed up in the flavor.

Growler pours a totally clear, bright copper with a thin, white head. Nose is nice, sweet, earthy, malty, floral. Flavor is sweet, the sweet potato actually comes through, malty, light fruit. Dry finish.

radagast83 (6101) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2014
22oz bottle, I drunk most of it. Poured a mostly clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was lots of sweet sugary notes, sweet potato yam character. Light lemon, caramel malt, lager character. Interesting. Not bad, but perhaps just a little sweet. A touch refreshing with a lower abv that was nice.

thedm (5215) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 27, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of mild citrus sweet mild spice and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
