Notes / Commercial Description:
In honor of Charlie Papazian and his extraordinary contributions to craft beer, Brewmaster John Maier has been brewing versions of CHARLIE Strong Ale for special occasions since 2001. With Charlie's retirement approaching, we jumped at the opportunity to brew this incredible beer for the AHA's Homebrew Con held in Portland, Oregon during June 2018. The bottle commemorates Charlie's achievements and hard work which has elevated professional and home brewing to where it is today.

With a light mahogany hue, rich carmalized malt notes, and agressive hop profile, CHARLIE 2018 Strong Ale will satisfy cravings from hop heads and homebrewers alike.

Pours to lasting buff head and dark gold color. Aroma is balanced with creamy sweet malt and light citrus hops. Flavor is malty and bitter nuts upfront with a strong charge of C-hops providing citrus flavor and resiny bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, nominal CO2 and slight alcohol warmth. Overall, a very well made strong ale.
