Chip Lewis, brewmaster at Iechyd Da, used hops from Ruthmere Gardens to create Dr. Beardsley’s Amber Ale — a malty, fall-colored beer, according to the newsletter. The inspiration behind the beer, according to the newsletter, was the Havilah Beardsley House opening to the public as a museum.
The ale will be served at Ruthmere’s annual fall concert series, which kicks off Friday, Oct. 9.
The concert series runs through the end of November. Call 574-264-0330 for tickets.
As a reminder, Iechyd Da is closed Oct. 5 to Oct. 12 for vacation, according to its website.
