Harvest Pale Ale
Limited time only!
A collaboration with Water Valley Hop Farms, takes hops from farm to kettle in under 7 hours. The use of the fresh hops provides floral and citrus aromas with an earthy, moderately assertive citrus rind bitterness and crackery malt foundation taste.
Our Harvest Pale Ale is a collaboration with Water Valley Hops, located just NW of Calgary. Our friends at the hop yard harvested a total of 40 kilograms of Fuggle and Centennial hops first thing in the morning, drove them to our brewery, and we added them as a late kettle addition the same afternoon; from vine to kettle in under 7 hours! These fresh hops (known as "wet hops" in the industry) give this beer floral and citrus aromas with a pleasant undertone of fresh cut grass and earthiness. A simple, well balanced grain bill lets the hop character shine through without excessive bitterness, allowing this pale ale to remain crisp and sessionable. This beer is best when fresh and once it’s gone it is GONE!
This beer features a hefty dose of freshly (same-day) picked Fuggles and Centennial hops originating from Water Valley Hops, located just NW of Calgary. Using our mash tun as a hop back, this late kettle addition gives the beer a bright citrus and floral aroma with hints of fresh cut grass and earthiness.
Dark Munich adds some colour and maltiness to a fairly pale beer. Wheat malt helps create a nice creamy foam that sustains.
This beer was made by our favourite and highly-talented house yeast strain, a dry english ale yeast from Escarpment Labs, in Guelph, Ontario.
- This beer is made with Barley, a close relative to wheat, as well as wheat; those with wheat and/or gluten allergies should avoid this product.
