Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)

Related to the English Bitter, the ESB is more aggressive in hops and ABV while still maintaining balance.

Gold to a medium copper in color, the malt flavors are both fruity and toasty, with earthy English hop flavors balancing the lightly sweet caramel malts. Although the name implies a bitter flavor, most examples of the ESB have a very nice balance.

Best served at cellar temperature, 55-57 degrees, and in a pint glass or beer mug.

First beer ever brewed at Ballast Point. Our Copper Ale is similar to our Calico Amber Ale, only with English crystal malts and the addition of Progress Hops. Copper Ale (Special Ale in 1996) was first practice brewed on a commercial system, by our friends at Pizza Port Solana Beach in 1995.

Our ESB (Extra Special Bitter) may have the word “bitter” in its name, but the key to this style is balance. The combination of malts and hops creates a toasty, fruity flavor. Our ESB is dry hopped with a US grown hop varietal called Williamette, which has a pronounced spicy, lemon flavor.

Traditionally craft brewed with Chocolate & Crystal malts and a blend of Styrian, Goldings & Fuggles hops to produce a full-bodied, Ruby beer that delivers a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour, balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity, mischievous character.

Head Brewer Vic is an Ohio State alum, and brewed this red ale for you to enjoy while tail-gating, watching the game with friends, or celebrating a victory. You'll find BBR has a toasty, caramel taste, goes down smooth and has a lingering clean, finish. (Description provided by company)
