Turning to the past for inspiration, we’ve recreated a historical Nordic Ale, a style dating back over 500 years! Using juniper berries and NO hops, we have forgone the 60-minute boil to mimic the traditional brewing techniques and ingredients used during this time period. The end result is a subtly spicy, slightly tart yet sweet tasting beer with banana aromas.

Morgan Wade exploded onto the Southwest Virginia music scene two years ago playing a blend of country, folk and high-energy Americana and jamming with a rotating group of musicians. She was immediately noticed for her tremendous song writing and powerful voice. Bassist Ed McGee and mandolin player Joe Link have been with Morgan from the beginning and added veteran rockers Drew Sprinkle on guitar and Bengy Wagner on drums to form the Morgan Wade and The Stepbrothers. The formation of the Stepbrothers allowed Morgan to front a harder-edged, yet professional stage show. Although Morgan still plays to her Americana roots, the music is driven by sensitive and penetrating lyrics and a tight, electrifying rock band. Morgan Wade and the Stepbrothers deliver an intersection of rock, country, and folk that reflects the beauty, anger, hunger, and hope of coming of age in modern Appalachia.

Eve 6 weren’t even legal drinking age when they were presented with their first platinum record. Thus, life came hard and fast at the members of SoCal pop-punk trio, whose meteoric success in the late ‘90s and early millennium ingrained their anthemic radio hits into the fabric of the lives of a whole generation.
Eve 6—which includes vocalist/bassist Max Collins guitarist Jon Siebels and drummer Ben Hilzinger (replacing Tony Fagenson who left the band in Feb. of 2018) —formed in Southern California in 1995 while the trio were just teenagers, then inked a deal with RCA Records before they’d finished high school. The band issued the self-titled Eve 6 in 1998, attaining platinum success with hit singles “Inside Out” and “Leech,” the former capturing the #1 spot on the Modern Rock charts and crossing over successfully to Top 40 radio. More widespread recognition came with gold-selling sophomore effort Horrorscope (2000), which spawned radio gems “Promise,” “On The Roof Again” and the ubiquitous prom and MTV anthem “Here’s To The Night”.
It seemed like Eve 6 were everywhere—the band made appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, and TRL with Carson Daly, with their videos in constant rotation on MTV. The band then released the more experimental It’s All In Your Head in 2003, featuring singles “Think Twice” and “At Least We’re Dreaming,”. 2012 saw the release of Speak In Code on Fearless records with top 20 Alternative single “Victoria” and fan favorite “Curtain”.
Since their debut Eve 6 has inspired a generation of bands and been named one of the 90’s defining rock acts. 2018 brings the band full-circle to where it all started with the 20th anniversary of their debut self-titled record Eve 6. This fall the band will celebrate the release that made them a household name with a tour in which they’ll be performing the album in it’s entirety.
