Made with three varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, Rowdy offers a complex flavor and aroma that is both aggressive and fun. The addition of malted rye to the grain bill lends a peppery and distinct character to the beer which complements the bitterness and floral notes of brewhouse hop additions. Finally, this copper-hued ale receives a liberal addition of dry hops in the fermenting vessel, imparting citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.

Draft at Meridian Pint, brewery release day. Welcome to the neighborhood! This one poured a transparent ruby color, with a small head. Pretty decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is a nice malted one, with a note of black pepper and spices. Flavor is distinctively rye, with notes of cracked pepper and a nice citrus finish.
