Founded by the the husband and wife team of A.J. and Karen Rorabeck, Rurban – a name that combines “rural” and “urban” – launched in late October with four brands: Stop and Goes (4.9% abv gose), Palatine Pale (4.1% abv pale ale), New Johnstown’s Best Bitter (4.3% abv bitter), and Alestake & Evergreen (5.9% abv IPA). More details about the beers can be found on the Rurban website.
Distribution of Rurban brands is currently limited to draught sales at select bars and restaurants in the area. On-site samples/glasses and retail sales of cans are expected to start at the brewery (414-416 Cumberland St., Cornwall) in December.
