BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Port City Brewing
Virginia, United States | website

Style: California Common / Steam Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Mid-Summer 2012, a violent derecho windstorm barreled through DC, leaving one million people without power. Our brewery was out of power for five days, which left us unable to control the fermentation temperature of a tank of lager. We were determined to save our beer, the tank fermented at a higher temperature than intended. As a result, the beer changed from a lager into a California Common beer.

The storm’s gift was this DERECHO COMMON™.

DERECHO COMMON™ is deep golden in color, and has toasty, biscuity malt flavors. It is medium bodied with an assertive hop profile. It is hopped with Centennial hops, which give it a spicy, citrusy hop kick on the finish.
