American Amber Ale
With the latest batch of Arrow Point Amber we are happy to announce the beginning of a transition of some of our beers towards WSDA Organic certification! The beer should be fully certified in a few months, but in the meanwhile we’re brewing it with all organic malts. Changes in malt availability meant a transition towards a more American-style Amber, with strong fruit and caramel notes and firm hoppiness. Certified Organic Malts: Pale, Munich, Crystal 60, Crystal 120 and Oats. Hops: Palisade, Cascade.
