For this beer, our brewmaster reached back to his roots and found inspiration in the traditional agua de horchata. Our cinnamon-spiced ale is his interpretation of this delicious Latin beverage.
Herbed and Spiced Beer
The style is nothing new, as ancient brewers commonly used herbs and plants for flavoring and bittering before hops were discovered.
Color can vary from quite pale to quite dark, and the spices and herbs added can vary. Some common additions are cinnamon and nutmeg during winter, ginger, juniper berries, and many others. Hops are generally quite mild (if they are present at all) in order to allow the sometimes subtle herb and spice flavors to stand out.
Best served cool, 46-54 degrees and in a stemmed tulip glass, pint glass, or beer mug.
A pale ale, saffron in color with a smooth malt balance; a floral aroma with a dry spicy finish from whole juniper berries. (Description provided by company)
A refreshing, sun-inspired spring ale. A subtle floral spiciness from Apollo and Northern Brewer hops is balanced by earthy notes from dandelion leaves, while acidulated malts provide a smooth, slightly sour malt body. (Description provided by company)
This was the first beer in our Ancient Ales series.
Agave complements the refreshingly light quality of our wheat and adds a subtle note of flavor that expands this beer’s uplifting taste profile. It is familiar, yet creative. (Description provided by company)
A special time of year calls for a special brew. For us, this brew combines the crispness of a white ale with the warmth of familiar holiday spices. (Description provided by company)
