Solano is a chili beer made using roasted Hatch chili peppers from Weber, Colorado, roasted by one of my esteemed colleagues. The intent was to produce a chili beer whose focus was not on intense heat, but rather on the flavors and aromas of the wonderful roasted Hatch chili. There is a spiciness to this beer, but it only lingers for a moment. Solano melds the rich flavors of roasted chilis and American malts, resulting in a flavorful beer that is slightly spicy with just a hint of smokiness. Solano is quite nice paired with food (burt use it in the food as well - try using it when making a beer can chicken, then serve Solano alongside. 6.0%ABV.
