For The Common Good
Despite its name, this is a very uncommon style. One unique thing about this style is that it is typically a lager style, but it is fermented at warmer ale temps. Our version flipped this concept on its head, and we used an ale yeast and fermented it at close to lager fermentation temps. The overall goal is to create a clean yeast driven profile while also letting the hops and malt shine through. The bitterness is strong but doesn’t linger, and the flavor is a malty, bready, woodsy and bright. The beer was brewed in collaboration with our friends at THRIVE Peninsula and will be featured at the 10th Annual Battle of the Beers Festival.
