COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in bottle and keg seasonally. Hook Island Red is a robust red Rye ale with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops. A hefty 20% of the malt make-up is rye, lending dryness and spice notes to the brew. Combined with pine and passion fruit flavours of the American hops, this is a complex, idiosyncratic brew that is a special part of our range.
