Drafting Room 11th Anniversary Ale


Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 9 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7%
Brewed exclusively for The Drafting Room. Figuring out how to differentiate this beer from the 10th Anniversary Ale became something of a challenge. “We liked last year’s formula so much, we were hesitant to meddle with the recipe,” Mullin offered. It was agreed, however, that the beer should change from year to year. Although the style once again remains a matter of some speculation, a new and unique hop, Palisade, will play an important role. Mullin explains, This hop walks the line between bittering and aroma with alpha acids just under 10%. It has a soft, clean finish with characteristics similar to Willamette.” Once again, Troegs will be “dry-hopping” the final product for an increased fresh, floral hop aroma. Additional hops include Tomahawk, Warrior and Cascade.
