Brewed as an American Pale Ale with a twist, a healthy dose of rye adds a subtle spiciness and frothy white head while generous amounts of pleasantly spicy and floral American hops compliment the gentle rye character.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Found this place by accident, had a flight and the county line rye jumped off the page...especially after a couple rides. Balanced, refreshing, and very drinkable. Decent tasting room with a vibe as one would expect with the name. Service was marginal but it's got potential.
