Cream Ale

Despite the name, this beer style is derived from the American Light Lager and is more of a hybrid than either a strict ale or lager. It is generally brewed as an ale until the final stage of the brewing process, when it is cold conditioned using lager yeast (or sometimes lager mixed in to the beer).

Cream Ale is generally a pale straw to light amber in color and it is not uncommon for larger breweries to mix in rice and corn adjunct into the beer for a lighter body, although smaller breweries use 100% malt. Most Cream Ales have low hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness, a crisp and light body, and a creamy, smooth finish. Very approachable and easy to drink.

Best served cold, 39-45 degrees, in a pint glass, tumbler, or beer mug.

Gravel Road is a hop forward, light bodied blonde ale brewed with flaked corn, amber syrup, and rose hips. It boasts malty, sweet, and aromatic Crystal hops aesthetics. Golden in color with aromas of citrus and peach, it's a crisp and refreshing brew. (Description provided by brewery)

Technically speaking, Nerd Alert is an ale. And if you want to get reeealllly technical, we fermented this beer with ale yeast at low temperatures to achieve an incredibly clean flavor. However, if you bring up this knowledge in normal circles, you will, in fact, be labeled a nerd.
