RAINDROP PALE ALE
American Pale Ale

Status: Occasional
ABV: 6.2%
Introduction date: June 2011



Our flagship beer, brewed with Floor-malted premium U.K. Maris Otter pale malt, plus crystal and chocolate malts, to balance an international kettle hop bill of West Coast (Palisade - for bittering / flavor) and New Zealand Nelson Sauvin (flavor / aroma) hops, with an added hopback charge of whole U.K. Kent Golding hops to add a unique late hop finish. A true ‘hybrid’ Premium Pale Ale blending worldwide ingredients and brewing techniques for a nuanced, complex brew. 44 IBUs. The name was inspired by a New York Observer newspaper article describing Alex Hall as having "a face like a raindrop"!

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Latin dishes, fish and chips, curry and other assertively flavored foods; also sharp cheeses such as Vintage Cheddar.
