COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you’ve just got to take it back to where it all began. And we took it way back with this offering. Old School is a British-style pale ale brewed with organic malts that feature Caramel and Munich malts for an easy drinking yet full-bodied character. The real darling of Old School, though, is in the hops. We went back and dug up some East Kent Goldings, traditionally used in all ales of British origin with a floral nose and an earthy, spicy, slightly sweet flavor. From start to finish, this is a great beer for celebrating the good times: past, present and future.
