Southern Tier Brewing Company Harvest Ale — 6 packs
While the Virginia summer seems determined to hold on with humid fingers, Southern Tier Brewing Co. from Lakewood, NY wants to ease you into fall. While most harvest ales are fresh hop IPAs celebrating the hop harvest, this harvest ale follows the English ESB. Cracked barley goes into this brew giving its caramel malt flavors just a little sweetness that plays with the citrus and fruit notes from the fresh English hops. The whole point is to make an ale that is easy to pick up and easier to refill.
