In 2016, Dr. Tripp Morgan sat on the porch of the family’s farmhouse in Albany with his father, Harris, overlooking their 200+ acres of organic wheat. He began to dream of resurrecting his love for creating delicious beer and creating a place for his community to meet and enjoy the flavors produced in this rich Southern soil. He envisioned the fields in front of him filled with barley varieties, wheat, hops, and fruit for seasonal additions. After more than three years of planning, transforming and building, Pretoria Fields Collective opened its tasting room doors in Downtown Albany in the winter of 2017. Our tradition as farmers is to focus on organic sustainable farming and natural resource management. Farming has been in the family for generations. We grow organically, as we believe that’s best, even though it’s more challenging. It’s farming the way that is used to be. Harris oversees the day to day operations on the farm and carefully monitors the selection, planting, organic maintenance and harvesting of a diverse and ever-growing crops. In weekly meetings, our collective comes together to discuss what’s happening on the farm, what’s happening in the brewery and what’s being served to our community. From the fields to the fermentation tanks and all the way to the glasses of our patrons – we are proud of what we’re doing. We couldn’t be happier to see conversations develop around tasting room tables, friendly competitions over a chess match and live music in our courtyard – as these all represent the vivacity of our community here in Albany. We hope that you’ll think of the Pretoria Fields Collective tasting room as your place – as it was designed to serve our community.
Our own Andy Williams will let us know about all that attracts visitors to our great city.
