Great Lakes Brewing Burning River Pale Ale

Great-Lakes-Brewing-Burning-River-Pale-AleNamed for the infamous 1969 Cuyahoga River fire that sparked the Clean Water Act of 1972, Burning River Pale Ale can be a bit unpredictable. Under his bold layers of bitter hops, there’s a softer side — a sweet, caramel backbone that he longs to share. And everyone loves a bad boy with a heart of gold. Should you bring him home to Mom? Why not? After all, it’s rude to show up to dinner empty-handed.

From the Brewer – “Pale ales gradually evolved from an English town called Burton-upon-Trent that was known for its distinctive hard water supply and propensity to brew a lighter-colored beer than was common at the time. Assertively hopped with citrusy and piney Cascade hops.”

Enjoy with: Smoky red meats and aromatic cheeses like Stilton and blue.
