Homestretch Pale Ale

Pale Ale – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.060 – FG 1.012 – ABV 6.1% - IBU 40 – SRM 13

This month’s beer is brought to you byJeremy!In case you haven’t met Jeremy, he’s the new guy! Jere was a brewer at Wellington for years, and we’re excited to have him and his expertise here at KJ. Here’s what he had to say about his first beer with us:

It’s the dead of winter and we’ve been drowning our malaise in thick porters and stouts. There is still lots of winter left, and yet, we are also embarking on the last leg of this winter journey. This beer is a homage to both heavy winter beers, and lighter spring brews. It features a malt heavy profile that is bolstered by a sweet bitterness imparted by the Sabro hops and the Escarpment Labs produced Voss Kveik yeast.

The first glass tastes sessionable, but don’t be fooled. This Pale Ale packs a 6.1 ABV. Enough to warm your bones through the rest of the winter. We’re almost there. This is the Homestretch.
