Conductor’s Craft Ale 5.3% ABV | 32 IBU

cca_sign

Conductor’s Craft Ale fits broadly into the pale ale category, though we think of it more as a hybrid of traditional British, German, and American brewing techniques used to arrive at a hop complexity that constantly changes in the glass as it warms up and a drinker drinks more. With The Conductor we wanted to tip our hats to ‘pioneer’ craft beers like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Anchor Liberty Ale, but at the same time the beer had to be balanced and drinkable to allow a drinker to enjoy more than one. We used 5 different malts from Germany, France, Britain and Canada to give Conductor’s a biscuity, toasted, caramel base, and a combination of 5 different hops from Germany, the Czech Republic and the Pacific Northwest of the USA. To finish the beer we designed and built in-house a ‘hopback’ mechanism that infuses the hop aromas into the beer in line from the kettle as the beer goes into the fermenter. We use whole leaf hops of Cascade and spicy German Tetnanger in ‘the Hopback’ to provide a unique and intense hop aroma that is familiar but uniquely presented.

FUN FACTS :

1.) American Pale Ale that showcases 5 types of malt and 5 types of hops
2.) Inspired by American Craft pioneer Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
3.) ‘Hopbacked’ with dry leaf Cascade and Tetnanger hops
4.) A hybrid of traditional British, German, and American brewing techniques

SERVING SUGGESTIONS : Serving temperature: 6 – 9°C

CHEESE PAIRING : Best with Havarti, Old or Extra old Artisanal Cheddar or Monterrey Jack.

FOOD PAIRING : Spicy Pad Thai but also perfect 
with BBQ anything!
