Cambridge Howdy, Pilgrim!


Brewed by Cambridge Brewing Company
Cambridge, Massachusetts USA
Style: Bitter | Ratings: 1 | Alcohol: 4.3%
Best Bitter with Pilgrim Hops. Well, itís nearly Thanksgiving, and the start to the Holiday (Beer) Season. What better way to remember our forefathers and foremothers than with a beer they would have joyfully consumed as they broke bread and gave thanks. Brewed in the style of Best Bitter (slightly stronger and more flavorful than Ordinary Bitter), with toasty malt character from English Maris Otter malt. It is serendipitously hopped with a new English varietal called Pilgrim. Seriously. Similar in character to Challenger hops, Pilgrims have a fresh grassy character with subtle earthy notes beneath. This excellent, well-balanced session beer is a classic best bitter, arriving just in time for the holidays, and a reminder that we all have a reason to give thanks. OG: 1.045 FG: 1.012 ABV: 4.3%%
