Brewed to celebrate Ben Franklins 300th birthday. Brewpubs across the country have brewed a reciepe similar to beer that Ben Franklin might have enjoyed during his lifetime. Our version uses corn, barley, and oats, along with some molasses, to create a light bodied slightly dark ale. Hopping is light, with English Kent Gold and US Cluster hop varieties providing 19 BU's, or bitterness units. The ABV is 5.6%, making it similar to the Old Ale beer style, which is the beer style attributed to early English brewing.
