Free State Trailrider Rye


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Specialty Grain | Ratings: 3 | Alcohol: -
Douglas County has it's fair share of trails - from the historically significant Oregon and Santa Fe Trails to the plethora of modern day bike and horse trails. Whatever the ride, this distinctive rye beer is just the thing to cut the dust when you're done with the trail for the day. The blend of the clean citrusy hop character of American Simcoe hops with a spicy flavor and silky smooth mouthfeel from the use of 25% flaked Rye in the grist makes a clean, refreshing ale with lots of flavor. We fermented this beer using the same German Ale strain that we use for the Ad Astra and the Golden so as not to override the flavors of the rye with the more fruity English Ale characters. O.G. -13.35/1053. Hops - 35 IBUs
