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.

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.

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.

Very nice sweet smell!! Only seem to get one good whiff though, maybe cause I let it sit for a bit, normal amber appearance, taste is malty on the front end and more hoppy on the finish..but light hops....watery though, light on flavor like a malty water

A nice crisp lager with a mellow sweetness. It’s earthy to a degree and has a touch of sweet potato flavor. You know. It reveals itself a little more with each sip...like a sweet potato fry finish. It’s actually quite nice, I want to put salt on it. It’s a really solid lager base too. Excellent body, cereal flavors and carbonation.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours a clear amber with a thin fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of sweet potato, spice, caramel. The taste is nutty notes, sweet potatoes, spice, caramel. Thin bodied. Decent.

22 oz bottle shared by a friend. Clear golden orange with big off-white head. Aromas of sweet potato, caramel, spice. Tastes of sweet potato, caramel, wheat. Medium body with a dry finish.

Rated on 02-27-2013 at Fullsteam Brewery. This draft beer has a small smooth off-white head with a short retention, golden transparent body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is earthy, sweet and bready malt. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is a quaffable session beer with not a lot of character to it.
