Summer is a special time in Grapevine, Texas filled with fun and family activities, festivals and all around good times. Every Friday night over the calm of Lake Grapevine, we celebrate the summer with fireworks and with our friends. The parks surrounding the lake are filled with onlookers and the lake strewn with boats and kayaks affording a breathtaking view of the fire-lit sky. And nothing hits the spot like Lakefire, a refreshingly hoppy American rye pale ale, spicy with a slightly sweet maltiness balanced by a smooth hop finish and subtle fruit aroma. The Lakefire is a unique pale ale and a GCB crowd favorite.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 12oz. can. Light malt on the nose, clear medium amber color. Small head with attractive remaining lacing. Taste is a bit woody hops with faintly sweet maltiness, light carbonation and mouthfeel (not much bite from the rye). Maintains a little bitterness, overall pretty tasty and refreshing.

Rich orange amber body with a nice thick cap that left curtians of lace on the glass all the way down, very nice. Aroma had hints of citrus, bready malts, and spicy rye. Flavor was about the same, fairly nice balance between all of the flavors, not terribly aggressive or assertive but its a pale ale so... Overall a nice enough beer that i would try again.

Pours lightly hazy amber with a thick head that leaves nice lacing. Weak aroma is mostly floral. Taste is more interesting, with good hop/malt balance and a dose of spicy rye.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a light copper with a medium white head. The aromas are rye, grass, citrus. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly dry with a light bitterness and lingering aftertaste. Cheers!

Hazy golden brew with fast fading head. Smells of rye and wet hay. Taste is some pepperish rye with a grainy background. Decent brew but would like to have been trying this on a hot day. One of the many brews picked up on my trip to Fort Worth so hope to go back in summer to try this one again. Oh and some overall points lost from me for having to take it in the CAN.
