COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the fairer-furred flying mammal who’d rather avoid a sunburned bum. Other parts of the country may lay claim on having great beer culture, but we ain’t too shabby down here in San Antonio… unfortunately we’re a lot closer to the surface of the sun, so bust out the SPF 100 to protect your tail from the South Texas rays. This quaffable thirst quencher combines a simple recipe of malts with a relatively reserved portion of American hops to create refined refreshment, perfect for escaping the heat on a patio with a view near you. And please, someone crank up the air conditioning. Ingredients: Pale, carapils, Munich & crystal malts; restrainedly aggressive American hops; top-fermenting yeast; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; Plenty of Shade

On tap at the pub. Clouded orange pour with a frothy white head. Sweet hop aroma. Citrus notes and spicy hop. Flavor of sweet hops, grapefruit citrus and light grain. Easy bitter finish that feels more fruity than hopped. Almost nutty.
