CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Thomas Jefferson’s mountaintop home is teaming up with a local brewery to launch a new ale.

The Thomas Jefferson Foundation says it’s working with Starr Hill Brewery in Crozet to offer Monticello Reserve Ale, inspired by what was produced and consumed regularly at Monticello. Brewing beer was among the plantation’s important activities, and the beer was one of the “table liquors” served with meals.

Monticello Reserve Ale is made from a combination of lightly hopped wheat and corn.

The ale will make its public debut at the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center museum shop on Feb. 21.
