BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Each autumn’s hop harvest presents an opportunity to assess yearly variation in flavors. Some are broad across all the plants in a region, others are specific to unique clones and certain farms. Each fall we choose two different varieties to add to our Harvest Ale. The first we receive straight off the bines and add it wet in the whirlpool. The second we add whole cone as a dry hop. Our base is a simple pale with a touch of rye spiciness to be seasonally appropriate with enough heft to support the selected hops while otherwise existing to flaunt the year’s crop’s nuances. Harvest 2018 was wet hopped with Hopsteiner Lemondrop from River Ranch and dry hopped with Experimental #07270 from Emerald Ranch. Drink Harvest because it is a fresh taste of things to come.
