DESCRIPTION

A well-balanced Copper ale with toasty herbal tones

A Fortune in Copper is a well-balanced copper ale.  Much akin to amber and red ales, our copper ale features a mashbill with big grain profile, but still avoiding a heavy dose of crystal malts to keep the body light and the beer dry.  We’re focusing on English hops to drive an earthy, more herbal flavor, and accentuate the bready character of the beer. 

We wanted to choose a copper ale for this menu to offer a crisp, flavorful, easy-drinking beer that will give you a break from a lot of the big spicy flavors we have rolling through a variety of our brews this month while still providing a beer with enough flavor and complexity to be interesting.  This is one of those beers that is always good to have in your fridge, as it is a wide-ranging crowd pleaser.  

Loaded with flavor, but still nimble on its feet, this brew will sing with many types of dishes from Lasagne to Lamb, but we really recommend trying this brew out Prime Rib with horseradish cream sauce, fingerling potatoes, and roasted Brussel sprouts. For cheeses, try out a red wine soaked Toscano. Dessert, try out some light, crispy and spicy gingersnap cookies for some contrast.

 

STYLE NOTES

Medium to moderately high bitterness. Moderately low to moderately high fruity esters. Moderate to low hop flavor, typically with an earthy, resiny, fruity, and/or floral character. Low to medium maltiness with a dry finish. The malt profile is clean with light caramel and lightly toasty finish. Caramel malts should produce a brew with the color of a penny. Low to moderate caramel or toffee flavors are optional. Balance is often decidedly bitter, although the bitterness should not completely overpower the malt flavor, esters and hop flavor. Generally, no diacetyl, although very low levels are allowed.
