Notes

Named, "Red Pill" -- this was the beer that started it all. This was the beer Michael tasted in my garage years ago and began the dream. Patterned after Belgian-style pale ales, this beer is not as bitter as it’s English cousin. Copper red and fruity, even slightly spicy, from the Belgian yeast strain, a blend of Munich, caramel and Victory malt puts the malty character of this beer front and center delighting with a toasty character that pleases the nose all the way through to the finish.
