American Amber(Red)Ale with a sharp bite of hops.

  • American 2-row pale ale malt, American Crystal 60L, Victory malt and Carapils malt rounds out the grain bill. Mash temperatures in the range of 152°F to 156°F create a wort with a nice balance of fermentable and non-fermentable sugars. Magnum hops adds a balanced bitterness, Willamette hops adds a unique floral aroma, and homegrown Cascade hops adds distinctive grapefruit flavor.
