ALPHA PALE ("XPA")
Summer Pale Ale

Status: Late summer seasonal (limited quantity this year)
ABV: 4.4%
Introduction date: June 2011



British-style Extra Pale Ale ("XPA") brewed for ‘sessionability’ with Maris Otter, wheat and crystal malts, U.S. and U.K. kettle hops (Cluster and U.K. First Gold) and a double dose of late hopping, first through a bed of whole Kent Golding hops in our brewhouse hopback, then after fermentation is complete, a cold filtration through a bed of whole hops in our “Lupulizer”. Not the same recipe as the original ’Alpha Pale’ test batch.

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Fish and chips, pizza dishes, chicken wings and other summer favorites; also cheese plates, especially soft cheeses.
