This year we’re partnering with Dancing Gnome Brewery to help you get in the gardening spirit. We’re pleased to announce a monthly Garden Tool beer series, proceeds of which support Grow Pittsburgh.
The Warren Hoe is the fifth beer in the Garden Tool Beer series. This year we are collaborating with the Dancing Gnome brewery to bring you new and exciting beers, and a chance to support Grow Pittsburgh in the process. If you missed the first, second, or the third beer don’t fret, there are more on the way! Each month our collaboration will feature a beer named after a garden tool, with the information provided by us and the can artwork by Camp Copeland Studio. Whether you have acres outside of the city, some raised beds in the suburbs, or a small porch set up in the city, we want to give you the tools you need to succeed, so learn more about the tools and try out these new beers available for a limited time.
Dancing Gnome’s description of the beer: This 6.4% IPA was brewed with healthy portions of spelt to showcase the effect the grain has on this hazy IPA. Hopped with Galaxy, Ella, Citra, and Amarillo you can expect a waterfall of tropical fruit boquet, fresh grapefruit, sticky resin, and exotic botanicals. Order here.
About the tool: The Warren Hoe is the perfect tool for digging shallow trenches and furrows. This can be especially helpful for planting bulbs, such as flowers and garlic, or direct sowing seeds, such as peas, beans, beets, carrots, and radishes. The long-handled version is a back saver, while still allowing you to draw the straightest, cleanest rows. This tool can also be used to uproot or cut weeds off at the root.
You can find the tools featured in this collaboration at our Garden Resource Center, which re-opened for the season on March 19.
