Silent Night is one of our most-loved special releases of the year, and it's debut is our biggest Tap Room event of the year! Kick off your holiday season by joining us for the first taste of this award-winning Imperial Stout brewed with freshly roasted coffee by our friends at Counter Culture, then barrel-aged in whiskey barrels.

This year, we're thrilled to be using Woodford Reserve barrels for our 2018 batch of Silent Night - AND we're brewing up three limited-release Silent Night variants as well:

*Silent Night Brewed with Spicy Peppers - 200 bottles
*Silent Night Aged in Mother Earth Spirits whiskey barrels - 200 bottles
*Double Barrel-Aged Silent Night (aged in Woodford Reserve barrels, then aged again in apple brandy barrels) - 200 bottles

We will have multiple vintages of Silent Night on tap for Silent Night Day 2018. Mari's Hella Fat Food will be joining us for this event and serving up great food to eat with your Silent Night, and our friends at Counter Culture Coffee will be serving free espresso shots of the Silent Night coffee blend!

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. Just blocks from the Mother Earth Brewing taproom and Mother Earth Spirits, the Mother Earth Motor Lodge has everything you need to make your Mother Earth visit a weekend to remember!
