Free State Batch 2000


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Scotch Ale | Ratings: 3 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8.75%
On April 18th, 2003 we brewed our 2,000th batch of beer. To celebrate, we made something special. Our Batch 2,000 uses pale ale, biscuit and rye malts with just a touch of roasted barley to create a full, rich malt flavor. The biscuit, rye and roasted barley flavors wind in and out, each lending its own notes to the concert of flavors. Northern brewer and fuggles hops lend a gentle balance in flavor and aroma. Big beers like this experience changes in character with remarkable frequency. Try one today and then see what it is like next week. O.G. 20.8/1083. Hops - 30 IBUs
