Drake’s Belgian Ale is brewed using the finest malt available (97% 2-row, 3% crystal). The original gravity was enhanced with the addition of 90 lbs. of California grown Deglet Noor dates as well as 60 lbs. of Belgian beet sugar. It is bitter hopped with imported Styrian Golding hops to achieve 25 IBU’s. Imported Saaz hops, along wiht 4 lbs. of Coriander, were added at the end of the boil to imbue a flowery and spicy aroma. It was them fermented using a unique Belgian Abbey yeast strain at 72º F to impart some estery overtones. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this unique beer, our 1000th brew! Limited release of 375 bottles.
