COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first Pale Ale is an example of the spicy, assertive style of beer that can only be described as American. It uses an American Ale Yeast and American Hops in a recipe that is designed to confront and engage your palate. Chair City is spirited, with a hoppy, in-your-face, aroma. Its citrus and floral notes are the result of the chemistry of fermentation and the generous use of Cascade hops in the later stages of the boil. Our first pale ale is given the name Chair City because, like the Chair City, it is solid, energetic, remarkable, and will be around for a long time.
