All-Grain Recipe: New World Ale

New World Ale

A hoppy ale with loads of the best of the Pacific Rim hops. We vary the hops we use from year to year depending on “What’s Good” and encourage you to experiment with your own selections. The result is an easy-drinking session ale with a malty backbone born of quality Australian Pale and German Caramel Hell malts.
