Bristol Brewing Releases New RyePA
Tonight Bristol Brewing releases the first rye beer that they have brewed. "With its rich copper color and exquisitely hoppy nose, Bristol's RyePA impresses at the very start. From there, bright, citrusy hop flavor takes center stage, set against a more subtle but solid malt profile. The rye malt lends its characteristic crispness, making this a highly refreshing addition to our Brewhouse Series." Complimentary eats for tonight's release will be provided by McCabe's Tavern.
