Our Runabout Red Ale started as seasonal ale that we only brewed from March until July. But it was so popular with our regulars that we started brewing it year round in 2002. Our red ale is made with only two hop additions to the kettle as opposed to three in most of our other brews. This brings out the malt charater. It is a well balanced beer suitable for pairing with all types of foods including spicey sauces, BBQ, grilled meats and vineagerettes and most any seafood. We have started bottling this beer for limited release and distribution at our pubs and specialty beer stores. If you know a store that would like to carry our Runabout Red ale or any of our other craft brewed beers please let us know. We will make it happen.
Brewed with American 2-row, caramel 20L , 40L & 80L. Hopped with Willamette and Nugget

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at the Portland branch. Pours clear, deep red-gold with a lasting, creamy off-white head. Bready malt nose with just hints of piney hops. Light to medium sweet flavor with slightly toasted bread, mild perfumey and piney bitterness, subtle orange. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Simple finish, more bready malts, mellow bitterness. Very basic but nothing wrong.
