We cannot wait to get our 2017 Silent Night into bottles! For the last five months, it has been quietly aging in bourbon barrels, and it is just about time to pull back the lid and share it with friends! Our award-winning Silent Night is an Imperial Stout that is brewed with Counter Culture coffee before aging in bourbon barrels, and we are releasing it in our taproom on November 18th, 2017! Not only will we be unveiling our 2017 batch of Silent Night, but we will have multiple vintages on tap, and an exclusive batch of Silent Night aged in our very own Mother Earth Spirits whiskey barrels! Doors open at 1pm - this is an event you will not want to miss! 

The 2017 Silent Night 750ml bottles will be available for purchase for the first time as well. Bottles are priced at $16 each.


If you like BBQ, then you’ll be excited to enjoy some fantas
tic BBQ pork cooked right onsite by Mother Earth’s own Brad Smith, a 1st place winner at Kinston’s BBQ On The Neuse Festival! Sandwiches will be sold at the event, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the smART Kinston City Project Foundation, which is working to build a vibrant arts and cultural district right in downtown Kinston. For more information,



We’re excited to once again partner with our friends at Counter Culture Coffee for this year’s batch of Silent Night. Each year, Counter Culture Coffee does a special roasting for Silent Night, and this year a representative from Counter Culture Coffee will be onsite from 1pm-5pm pulling FREE espresso shots using this year’s blend! Taste this fantastic coffee right alongside your Silent Night!


We look forward to celebrating Silent Night Day each year, and each year we print a commemorative poster to mark the event. Over the past month we've been collecting and reviewing fantastic designs, and we are proud to announce that Kit Mobley's submission will be featured as the 2017 Silent Night Release Day official Poster! Check out his design at the top of the page!  These commemorative posters will be available on Silent Night Day. We plan to produce a new version each year - collect them all!


We want you to be able to join us and enjoy Silent Night Day responsibly, as well as experience all that downtown Kinston has to offer, so we encourage you to book a room at the newest edition to the Mother Earth Family - the Mother Earth Motor Lodge! Recently restored to its mid-century glory, the Mother Earth Motor Lodge is an immersive experience of the 1970s. With a pristine pool and poolside lounge and an outdoor activity area, the Mother Earth Motor Lodge is the best new place to stay when you come down for Silent Night Release DAy! Guests can sip a  Mother Earth beer by the pool, enjoy a complimentary game of shuffleboard, mini golf, or table tennis, or relax in a spacious, retro suite.
