Beers will be now be available in signature growler

Harvest Seasonal Kitchen is embracing Fall with a launch party to debut their new beer Red River Rye, a red ale brewed with Texas grains and rye, dry hopped and naturally conditioned with local wildflower honey.  Red River Rye is the second in their collection of signature craft brews following the success of the Farmer’s Daughter, a honey blonde ale developed in 2017. Both beers will be available to purchase in a signature growler.

Toby Thomason is the General Manager of Harvest Seasonal Kitchen, a farm-to-table restaurant in downtown McKinney. A lifelong passion for beer led to his developing an in-house brewing program at Harvest, establishing it as McKinney’s first brewpub. Harvest is committed to using exclusively Texas-grown ingredients in their brews including hops and honey produced on their farm, Water Boy Farms. Toby is a Cicerone Level 1 Certified Beer Server and lives in Princeton with his wife Erin and their three children.

Bob Lang is a transplant to Texas from small-town Ohio. Love of beer and a fascination with nature fueled a passion for learning the nuances of making beer. This lifelong research project came to life for Bob in an opportunity to create a truly great beer with local ingredients at Harvest. Bob lives in McKinney with his wife of over 30 years, Louisa, and their two Australian Shepherds, Calvin and Clyde.

“In the kitchen, at Harvest, we are dedicated to using as many local ingredients as possible, so our beer will be no different using Texas grains, hops, and honey from our farm,” said Thomason.

Beer lovers, foodies, and fans of Harvest Seasonal Kitchen should attend the event which will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Harvest Seasonal Kitchen located at 112 East Louisiana Street in McKinney.
