BETRAY ALE

DRY-HOPPED MAIbock

AROUND HERE, BREWING ISN'T A JOB, IT'S A LIFE. AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY. TO US, CRAFTING BEER IS A BOLD AND CREATIVE ENDEAVOR. OUR TASK IS NEVER DONE; THERE'S ALWAYS A NEW RECIPE TO TRY, A NEW PROCESS TO TINKER WITH.

IT'S THIS PASSION FOR BREWING, tHIS ENTHUSIASM AMPED TO THE NTH DEGREE, THAT GOES A LONG WAY IN EXPLAINING WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED WITH #011 BETRAY ALE.

IT STARTED WITH THE CREATION OF A PERFECTLY WONDERFUL GOLDEN BOCK BEER. UT WHILE MOST FOLKS WOULD PAT THEMSELVES ON THE BACK AND CALL IT A DAY, OUR BREWERS HAD OTHER IDEAS.

MORE SPECIFICALLY, THEY HAD HOPS.

AND BEFORE YOU CAN SAY "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" THAT BOCK BEER WAS GETTING A HEALTHY (?) DOSE OF DRY-HOPPING.

THE RESULT OF THIS SHOTGUN MARRIAGE? A BREW WITH AN INCREDIBLY FRAGRANT AROMA, A WONDERFULLY HOPPY FLAVOR AND AN UBER-SMOOTH BOCK FINISH. LL FROM TWO BEER STYLES YOU NORMALLY WOULDN'T DREAM OF PAIRING UP.

#011 BETRAY ALE. PROOF that sometimes, A LITTLE BETRAYAL — AND A WHOLE LOT OF BREWING PASSION — CAN BE A VERY GOOD THING.
