The result of an epic and torturous 22 hour-long brewday (and night), Batch 1 is a hybrid, single hopped pale ale. As the name suggests, it was the first batch of beer brewed at Westbrook Brewing. An American-ish grain bill was hopped with Amarillo and split into two fermentors: one got an English ale yeast; the other was fermented with our Belgian ale yeast. After fermentation, the two batches were blended back together and dry-hopped with more Amarillo. The fruitiness of the English and Belgian strains is harmoniously accented by the intense apricot aroma of the Amarillo hop. Enjoy this very deliciously drinkable ale while you can, you may never see it again!
