Snow White Alpine Pale Ale

UP A MOUNTAIN, DOWN A BEER

Earlier in the year there were several news headlines about bad weather referring to “Epic Thunder”, a beer we had just release, many people commented on the free publicity. A few weeks later there was an “Epic Snow” headline so we took it as a sign for the next beer we should brew. We had penciled in brewing a White IPA this year, so this was perfect. To make the beer “Epic Snow” it was decided to head to the mountain and collect some snow to brew with (see the video). What makes this beer different? We have brewed it with wheat malt for the pale hazy appearance. The noticeable orangey citrus character comes from the marriage of crushed coriander seeds and the Cascade and Centennial hops. The fruitiness comes from the really warm fermentation with a special ale yeast.

ABV: 6.5% (the number of the yeast)
IBU: 35
