Growler thanks to yourefragile, our local McKenzie supplier. Thanks Michael!

The beer is hazy and yellow with a small white head that leaves some sparse lacing behind. Very enticing aroma, with lemons, citrus, brettanomyces. Nice flavor, though not quite up to the standard set by the aroma. Nice hop character with a touch of earthiness and some bright citrus notes. Really easy to drink. I would be happy to have this again.

A McKenzie's beer provided via growler by yourefragile. Thanks! Beer served in a snifter.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a wispy white head of small bubbles, no real lacing or carbonation, probably the growler's fault though.

ARoma is sweet and bretty with some hops in there, nice.

Beer is light in body, a nice lemony sort of brightness to the whole thing and a good beer with a nice finish. I'd have it again on draft for sure.

Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served in a McKenzie wine glass.

Pours a medium caramel color with a nice white head and lacing on the way down. The nose brings some really nice Brett funk and fruitiness to complement the APA-type hops. The Brett did a lot of work, and that really comes out as it warms. The flavor doesn't mix the hops and the Brett quite as well, as the Brett takes over, though not at all in a bad way. Mouthfeel is tantalizing, with a really nice combination of earthy and fruity Brett with crisp hop bitterness. Very well done.

An American Pale Ale brewed with brett. Served in a pilsner glass at Chadds Ford location.

Pours dark, clear amber with a light tan head. Hoppy and funky nose. Medium thick body, full carbonation. Strong malt body and light fruity hop finish with surprising amount of light tart and funk. A very pleasant, unique hoppy wild.
