COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ryehopper began as a fall seasonal and has now found it’s way into our regular line-up. The brewers noticed a lack of rye beers in the Asheville area and wanted to fill that gap. This beer represents assistant brewer Chris Richards’ first recipe released by the brewery. The malted rye contributes both a rounded maltines and a sharp earthy flavor, bridging the maltiness of the barley and the bitterness of the hops. In essence, the Ryehopper is a hoppy rye beer. Seriously, what else did you expect?

On tap at the brewery. Chestnut pour with minimal head. Spicy aroma with very apparent rye and a touch of malty sweetness. The flavor is every bit as spicy as the aroma lets on. A nice bit to this one. Plenty of rye (and as it turned out, this is almost 100% rye), spicy well matched hops and roasty note as well. Just a touch of sweetness to balance out the spice. Interesting does not quite cover it. Semi-dry light-medium body. A very interesting and enjoyable concept. I’d make on of these myself. But I guess you really need to like your rye.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours a light brownish amber with a thin white head. Spicy rye and roasty grain aroma. Smooth slightly malty taste, nice body. Still retains some of the roasted grain elements and the rye, though not as hoppy as I thought it would be. The grains seem to be highlighted more, which is nice. Very refreshing.
