559 Brew master Creates New Beer To Honor Grandpa Al

Posted:
A Clovis brew master is unveiling a new beer on Thursday to honor his late Grandfather.  The beer, Raisin Farmer Ale" is something Rhett Williams and his Grandfather Al Gomes talked about for more than five years.  Gomes was a raisin farmer in Caruthers for more than fifty years.

Rhett Williams has been making beer in Clovis since 2012 and he wanted to make a beer that featured his Grandfather's favorite ag product.  "It's a salute to Grandpa and all the raisin farmers in the Valley and that's what we're known for here."  

Al Gomes taught his daughter Cheryl how to drove on the blue tractor featured on the bottle of Raisin Farmer Ale.  "He was born and raised in the Valley, family roots in the Valley for over 100 years.  Raisin Farmer Ale means a lot to Rhett, myself and my family."

Ryan Williams says a few local eateries already feature their Porter beer that includes mission figs.   "You can go to a bar and get a 559 and know you're getting it made here, package her, quality product and it's always changing to some kind of ag product."

Williams produces 310 gallons of beer weekly.  Locally 559 beer is sold at Sprouts, The Market and Food For Less.  

Thursday's unveiling of Raisin Farmer Ale will be held from 6:00.p.m.. to 8:00 p.m. at the 559 Brewery 1465 Tollhouse Road in Clovis.  The event is open to the public.
