Woodstock Inn Thru Hiker Rye Pale Ale


Brewed by Woodstock Inn Brewery
North Woodstock, New Hampshire USA
Style: Specialty Grain | Ratings: 6 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.9%
Introducing the newest beer in our already impressive line up: Through Hiker Double Rye P.A. At a time when most breweries are scaling back hop usage due to price and limited availability, we’ve gone to the complete opposite end of the spectrum with Through Hiker! This unfiltered behemoth is loaded with American Cascade and Centennial hops in the boil and over THREE POUNDS of Cascade in the hop percolator! As if that weren’t enough, we dry-hopped Through Hiker in the fermenter with even more Cascade hops! What does all this mean? 56 IBU’s is what it means. At 13.5 Lovibond, Through Hiker is Amber in color with a slightly reddish hue due to the addition of Crystal malt and the ample addition of Cara-Pils malt. A full 20% of the grain bill consists of Weyermanns Rye malt which adds a spicy, full, viscous mouthfeel to the beer. Our total grain bill weighed out at just over 450 lbs. which adds up to 7.9% abv. so please drink responsibly, lamp shades on the head are SO yesterday...We’ll be rolling out the red carpet for Through Hiker on Monday August 18th and it will only be available on site at the Woodstock Inn, Station and Brewery!
