Happy Sunny Ridge Brew Week!
This dreary March week has us thinking forward to warmer weather as we brew our Spring/Summer seasonal, Sunny Ridge! Sunny Ridge Pilsner is back this year as our May through July seasonal and available in cans for the first time!
Sunny Ridge has a sunshine-y hue that lends it it’s name, an herbal noble hop nose and a dry, crisp and refreshing finish. We balance the pilsner malt with a blend of European noble hops and polish it with extended periods of cold conditioning. It’s everything we love in a warm weather beer and the perfect beer to have you drinking like royalty.
This lager is very special to us because we work with a small maltster, Klostermalz, in Bavaria, Germany, to source the malt for this lager. We also use large amounts of European noble hops including Saaz, Hallertau and Herkules hops and the traditional decoction mash process. Jack has actually made a number of trips to Germany to meet with the small maltster and hopster that we source the ingredients from for this pilsner and he will be going back in late April for another trip. Lucky him!
Sunny Ridge will be available starting in early May and can be found in six packs and on draft anywhere you get your Jack’s Abby fix. Prost!
