COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new Long Root Ale is a great beer—with great purpose. Beyond the crafted Grapefruit hop flavor, beyond the balanced maltiness lies a story as refreshing as its dry, crisp finish.

Patagonia has teamed up with Hopworks Urban Brewery to create Long Root Ale, a great tasting beer that’s the first to be made with Kernza®, a perennial grain grown using regenerative agriculture practices. We believe the future of farming lies in organic regenerative agriculture which restores soil biodiversity, sequesters carbon, and efficiently grows crops without chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Our delicious pale ale is brewed with organic two-row barley, organic yeast, organic Chinook, Mosaic and Crystal hops, and Kernza. Kernza’s long root system and perennial growth allows it to thrive without tilling, preserving precious top soil. It also uses less water than conventional wheat, removes more carbon from the atmosphere and makes one damn good beer.

We are on a mission to repair our food system through organic regenerative farming practices and encouraging others to do the same. Cheers!

Tallboy can from Asahiya. Nose of grapefruit, more citrus, all lightly dank and earthy. Slightly hazy dark amber color, sticky lace. Flavors of grain, grapefruit, and moderate bitterness from mid palate to finish. Thin-medium body. Balanced and fairly gentle overall. Tasty. A solid pale.

Light amber color. Lots of pink grapefruit and apples in the nose. I actually like the mouth feel a lot. Moderate bitterness. The mouth feels a bit lighter than usual. Clean, snappy APA that I like and would like to see this grain used more often.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5391) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2017
This beer was designed to showcase Kernza a perennial grain and donates 1% of sales to The Environment. A crystal clear orange gold with a thick light beige head. The aroma has lots of citrusy hops and earthy peppery grain character a bit similar to Rye. Quite full bodied with a raspy carbonation. The initial flavor is big on chewy rustic grains then the hops step in with a bitter punch of citrus zest and it finishes sharp. A bit floral in the finish.

IslandHaole (1300) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2017
Nice looking beer! A clear orange color with a creamy beige head. Well balanced aroma with pine/citrus hops with undertones of a sweet fruit cocktail. Sweet front and a good bitter follow but has an odd middle, could be the grain i’m unfamiliar with but has a tinge of artificialness to it. Even with the unusual midsection, overall it’s quite drinkable with a good crisp bite.

anstei (2673) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Can. Pours clear golden yellow. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, with grass and flowers some citric notes too. Body is medium with a lively carbonation, bitter on the back with some residual sweetness flushing in, but the bitterness wins. Palate is dry and bitter, but nice too. Good.

3.6
SinH4 (6403) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2016
Can, thanks Max! Golden color with small white head. Aroma is floral, piney, grapefruit, toasted malts. Taste is toasted malts, grapefruit. Medium carbonation. Nice and clean malty IPA.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2016
From can stamped 19 Oct 2016, it’s lightly hazed sparkling honey with a lasting white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, grassy, coming across somewhat like French Strisselspalt with a musty honeysuckle quality, but some odd green vegetable / lettuce notes also seem to develop, and a muted sense of plastic / alcohol. For malt it’s grainy graham cracker / pie crust with something oddly like cheese or cream (yeast?). In the mouth it’s medium bodied and lightly sweet with plump carbonation and a clean, bouncy finish. So the texture is enjoyable and flavor balance in the right spot, and all ingredients seem to only compliment the rest.
