Brewed in collaboration with the reigning Philly Beer Geek, Natalie DeChico, we proudly present the official beer of the 2012 Philly Beer Geek competition. Amarillo, Centennial, and Styrian Aurora hops were carefully balanced with pale and crystal malts to best compliment the addition of fresh basil. The citrus and herbal aroma should please the hopheads while a hint of basil flavor in the finish makes this the perfect beer to have with our margharita pizza.
