COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship High Country is a deep, golden ale brewed with American 2-Row and Munich style malts. Cascade and Centennial are used in the finish and dry hopping. This is our best selling and most versatile ale due to its balance between a floral citrus hop profile and well-integrated hop bitterness. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing.

Foxbush (1437) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2010
This was purchased in bottle at the Blockcade Runner on Wrightsville Beach. The full bodied ale was a modest APA. Small head that laced down the glass. The clear color of amber was very inviting. This ale had excellent balance of malts and hops. It could have more hops. We were watching the US tie England in their first game of group C.
