The first in what will hopefully be a continuing line of Griesbach Lodge beers is now available. Available at our festive board and at other Griesbach Lodge events!
We can’t promise inner peace, but our Griesbach Lodge Pale Ale definitely has a zen-like balance with its smooth body and light carbonation.
Griesbach Lodge Pale Ale is a West Coast style pale ale that is both kettle hopped and dry hopped with Centennial and Cascades. The hops provide this ale with a nice citrus-like taste to balance out the caramel malts.
West Coast style pale ales are from a larger category of brews called American Pale Ale (APA). The APA is a cleaner and slightly hoppier version of British Pale Ales using North American hop varieties but everything else remains the same, right down to the balance between malts and hops to the medium body. With the additional hops APA tends to produce nice fruit-like flavours while balancing out the bitterness from the hops used in the process.
