ABOUT THE BREW: Our second Trail Magic Ale release, is a refreshing, citrus infused Lemongrass Imperial India Pale Ale. Along with our liberal use of Lemongrass and Sorachi Ace Hops, fresh lemon zest and wildflower honey give this Imperial IPA the adventurous soul of a Great Smoky Mountain Summer. 9% ABV
PURCHASING BOTTLES: We’ve chosen to offer the second Trail Magic release in capped 22oz bottles. Guests are encouraged to arrive before noon on Saturday morning for an opportunity to purchase up to four bottles at $15 per bottle. There is a limited number of bottles available and we encourage everyone to arrive early. Once everyone in line has been offered the opportunity to purchase bottles, we will allow guests to reenter the line to purchase additional bottles based on availability.
PORTION OF PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT APP TRAIL: A portion of proceeds of the bottle sales will be donated to the Appalachian Trail Ridgerunner Program via the Friends of the Smokies organization.
ABOUT THE RIDGERUNNER PROGRAM: Each year the Park recruits a series of individuals who provide a presence on the Appalachian Trail from March through October. They provide visitor information, do trail maintenance, pack out litter, keep up composting privies, report on the condition of the trail and the shelters, report emergencies and advise hikers on food storage and other regulations, and relay real-time information regarding possible problem bears. Their presence on the AT for over 15 years has made a huge difference in the Park’s ability to manage the AT.Cost: http://www.nantahalabrewing.com
