Brewed by:
Newburgh Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Prohibition certainly changed America, didn’t it? The ripple effects of Prohibition were felt far & wide. Pre-Prohibition, New York was the #1 producer of hops in the United States. Today? Well, it’s not #1 anymore, but it’s hoping to grow right alongside the burgeoning New York craft brewing market.
With our Harvest Ale, we are proud to support local farmers as they set out to re-establish NY as a hop-growing state. Our 2012 Harvest Ale is an American Pale Ale that exclusively uses hops grown by two local farms: Tony Menditto of Walden, NY and Madura Farms of Pine Island, NY. These hops were still wet when we brewed, giving the beer a fresh, almost “grassy”-type of hoppiness.
So, as you raise a glass of our Harvest Ale, know that you are joining the New York hop growing movement… one pint at a time.

Mini-growler from the brewery.

Clear copper hue, epic lacing. Aromas of soft resin, pine, leafy, pears, lemon pith, and mild breadiness. Lighter bodied, very crisp, biscuity maltiness, loaf of bread, peppery hop flavor, mild orange peel, hop oil, fresh grass with a long lasting fresh hop and graininess in the drying finish.

Damn, yet another super drinkable brew form Newburgh. Lets all hope this one or something similar gets brewed again. This is one brewers that knows how to nail sessionable beer without it becoming less of a beer.
