Specialty/Seasonal – American blonde ale
Beach Bum Blonde Ale is a traditional American blonde ale with a slightly spicy hop note and balanced malty flavor.
Beach Bum Blonde Ale is brewed with Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest and Alsace and Hallertau hops from southern Germany. This blonde ale draws its deep golden color from the caramel malt.
How to Serve:
Beach Bum Blonde Ale pairs wonderfully with summertime cuisine, including barbecue dishes, fresh salads and fish. It’s best served in a pub-style, wide-mouthed glass which opens up the fruity, citrus hop aromas of the beer and showcases its beautiful golden color.
Beach Bum Blonde Ale uses a dry-hopping brewing technique. Normally, hops are only added to the brew kettle. When dry-hopping a beer, hops also are added to the aging tank in order to increase the hop aroma of the beer.
Beach Bum Blonde Ale won a bronze medal in the blonde ale category at the 2006 North American Beer Awards.
