Brewed by:

Style: Rauchbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
We’ve stepped out of the boxcar and created our own take on a German Rauchbier (Smoke beer). Instead of using Beechwood, we have selected the indigenous pecan wood and smoked a munich malt in our homemade malt smoker.

The Smoky Mary has a subtle smoked flavor that pairs well with barbeque and just about anything off of the grill. She clocks in at 5.3% alcohol by volume, which makes it a nice sessionable smoked beer.
