    The City Slicker Sour Farmhouse is a perfect blend of the classic Farmhouse style of Milkhouse Brewery and the funky and creative side of Olde Mother Brewing, but it is much more important than that. This beer is special because it utilizes the experimental grain from the University of Maryland Agriculture Extension office. The goal with this brew is two-fold: one, to continue educating beer lovers on the importance of supporting local beer agriculture and two: to help ensure the success of the malt growing program through UMD.
