Biere de Garde
One of the greatest military honors is the privilege to serve with the prestigious 3rd U.S. Infantry, otherwise known as the Old Guard. This prestigious unit serves as the official escort to the President, and its members maintain a constant vigilance over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In 1996, the first woman proudly joined it ranks.
SBC honors these noble sentinels with a traditional bière de garde, a malt-focused ale accented by yaupon honey from Savannah Bee Co. This coppery brew’s ripe fruit notes and woodsy cellar-like aroma come from the honey yeast strain cultivated from the brewery’s own small apiary.
