Beer Stories
Erie, Pennsylvania, the site where three sets of railroad track gauges met, was an important transportation hub in the mid-nineteenth century. Railbender Ale is named after the laborers who laid the railroad tracks. It is brewed with pride, strength and purity; symbolic of Erie’s historic railroads and their workers. Railbender is a strong Scottish Style Ale with astonishing drinkability. One try and you’ll want to “Bend the rules and ride the rails!”

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Sample at AleFest Dayton: Clear amber color with a medium foamy light beige head. Spotty lacing. Equal parts hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied and clean on the tongue with mild malt and hops flavors. Some fruit is present too. The different flavors don’t really click and nothing really stands out though. The finish is short and malty. Average overall.

This is a decent beer. By far the best in the variety pack. It tastes like it is loaded with alcohol but is only 6.8. Lacking it overall flavor Could be a little less bitter.
