Elementary Ale 1
Date: 3 Apr 2020
Date First Tapped: 11 March 2016
Elementary Ale 1 is inspired by the love of Belgian inspired brews, hops and experimentation. Taking inspiration from Belgian Tripels such as Westmalle, Elementary Ale 1 twists this style base by hopping extensively with a range of New World and Old World hops. The noble Saaz hop from the Czech Republic and its new world hoppy ‘children’, the NZ grown, Saaz-derived, Motueka and Riwaka hop give a great New World hop character to the beer. Loads of hops late, a solid 55 IBU and a cracking dry finish all blending with the luscious Belgian Trappist Ale yeast character makes Elementary Ale 1 a complex, drinkable brew. Brewed in collaboration with Fortitude Brewing Co.
