Lost in the Trees Farmhouse Ale is the first in Fullsteam Brewery's new Forestry series. "Our band name also fit well with that theme," Picker says, laughing. "Fullsteam's concept is to make beer with local ingredients, like sweet potatoes and, for this one, figs. We got together and decided it should be an ale-style beer. I'm not super-knowledgeable. I brew beer at home, but I'm very much an amateur. It's a non-musical activity to do to keep me sane."
What -- drinking beer or making it? "Both," says Picker.
