Red Cockaded Ale is named after the Red Cockaded woodpecker, an endangered species that makes it home just miles from the brewery. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of this beer are donated to the Friends Of Texas Wildlife to help raise awareness of this species and other Texas Wildlife. This beer is deep red with a generous dose of malted rye and English crystal malts, giving the malt profile a sticky caramel property and substantial earthiness. The beer also has massive late charges of Pacific Northwest hops, as well as being generously dry hopped, making this beer intensely hoppy, displaying citrus, pine and resin in both aroma and flavor.
