A crisp, lively, easy drinking beer, this recipe is heavily influenced by our time brewing in England and France. We use pale malt, malted wheat, and malted oats from Pioneer Malting in Rochester, a hint of caramalt, and generous doses of our CENTENNIAL, CASCADE, COLUMBUS, and CHINOOK hops to brew this highly sessionable ale. Dry, aromatic and refreshing.

Inspired by our brewer's time as a young man living beside a famous stout brewery in Dublin, our foreign extra hearkens back to the strong stouts brewed to withstand the long sea voyages from Ireland to the far corners of the British Empire. This black elixir features our FUGGLE and ULTRA hops, pale malt and malted wheat from Pioneer Maltings in Rochester, flaked barley, roasted barley, chocolate malt, and caramel malt. Smooth and rich with a hint of dark chocolate and smoke.
