Named after a close friend of TGB “Jay the Tailgate Guy,” Jay’s Blacktop Blonde is the ultimate homage. It is our way to say, we see you out there on the blacktop and we know you’re thirsty. This is why you deserve a 100% natural craft beer brewed with the same stuff cavemen used thousands of years ago. An American blonde ale that stays true to form. Bold use of magnum and cascade hops creates a soft subtle spice that set this easy drinker apart from the rest. Beautiful golden malts show you we’re not afraid to put something besides water down your gullet. So crack one of these beauties wherever you are, and in the immortal words of Jay the Tailgate Guy, “Grill on.”

First brewed at Skyscraper in California, moved in 2010 to Cold Spring.

gunnar (7516) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2016
Can from Ales By Mail. Pours almost clear deep golden with a massive creamy white head. Aroma is weak citrus and caramel malts with grains in the back. Taste is moderate sweet grainy, caramel , almost no traces of hops, but hey, this is craft, so it must be better than the ordinary swill. And besides it is

My US state #41.
