DESCRIPTION

A well-balanced Copper ale with toasty herbal tones

A Fortune in Copper is a well-balanced copper ale.  Much akin to amber and red ales, our copper ale features a mashbill with big grain profile, but still avoiding a heavy dose of crystal malts to keep the body light and the beer dry.  We’re focusing on English hops to drive an earthy, more herbal flavor, and accentuate the bready character of the beer. 

We wanted to choose a copper ale for this menu to offer a crisp, flavorful, easy-drinking beer that will give you a break from a lot of the big spicy flavors we have rolling through a variety of our brews this month while still providing a beer with enough flavor and complexity to be interesting.  This is one of those beers that is always good to have in your fridge, as it is a wide-ranging crowd pleaser.  

Loaded with flavor, but still nimble on its feet, this brew will sing with many types of dishes from Lasagne to Lamb, but we really recommend trying this brew out Prime Rib with horseradish cream sauce, fingerling potatoes, and roasted Brussel sprouts. For cheeses, try out a red wine soaked Toscano. Dessert, try out some light, crispy and spicy gingersnap cookies for some contrast.

 

STYLE NOTES

Relatively neutral palate with a crisp and dry finish and a moderately-low to low grainy or corn-like flavor that might be perceived as sweetness due to the low bitterness. Hop flavor ranges from none to moderately-low levels, and can have a floral, spicy, or herbal quality (although often not strong enough to distinguish). Hop bitterness at low to medium-low level. Balance may vary from slightly malty to slightly bitter, but is relatively close to even. High levels of carbonation may accentuate the crispness of the dry finish. Clean lager fermentation character.
