10 Of The Best Farm-to-Bottle Beers In North America

By Stacy Tornio

If you’re a fan of the farm-to-table movement, you’re going to love farm-to-bottle. 

This concept is quite simple, really. It’s when craft breweries use only the freshest, most local ingredients to make their beer truly fantastic. 

The movement is growing, as craft farm breweries continue popping up all over North America. Here are 10 of the best farm-to-bottle beers on the market. Most come from working farms, which is an awesome excuse for a road trip so you can put these brews to the test yourself. 

1. Scratch Beer's Single Tree Hickory

Scratch Beer is considered a foraging brewery because it incorporates wild, local ingredients like nettle, lavender, dandelions, ginger and mushrooms. Nestled just next to the the Shawnee National Forest in Ava, Ill., the brewery — also a full-time farm — was named by Outside magazine as one of the most beautiful places to drink beer. The brand's Single Tree Hickory beer is a sour ale made from hickory leaves, nuts, hulls and bark from the farm instead of hops.
