BEER HOG: A partnership between Townsite Brewing, the Chopping Block and Myrtle Point Heritage Farm is working out well for local foodies. Beer, jerky, pretzels, charity and sustainability? Yes, please! Only eight per cent of the potential food value (energy) in the grain is used by the brewery. The grain (mostly malted barley and some malted wheat) is eaten by the pigs after the sugar juice (wort) is removed. Once the hogs are slaughter size, they are butchered on the farm and then taken to Chopping Block where Russ Simmons turns some meat into delicious pepper pork jerky. Production on the pork jerky began just before Christmas last year. “They were looking for something they could have for sale on the counter at the brewery,” said Ezra. The hogs are bred, raised and slaughtered on the farm. The jerky is sold exclusively at Townsite Brewing. “It is so good,” says Chloe Smith, manager of Townsite Brewing. “We can’t keep it in stock.” Customers like the fact that they are buying something local to go with their beer. On Fridays, the brewery also sells locally made pretzels by Zoe MacBean of Many Hats Farm. Michelle talks about the relationship the brewery has with Myrtle Point Heritage Farm when they do brewery tours. “People just love that story,” she said. “It’s a perfect pairing.” And every year, the Carrolls donate one of their Berkshire pigs to Townsite Brewing as a thank you. Townsite Brewing then donates the pig to a charity so it can use the proceeds from the pig roast as way to raise money. “It’s the whole full circle idea,” says Michelle.
