Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
E.S.B. stands for Extra Special Bitter. This is the strongest of the English Bitters. Our E.S.B. is brewed to about the strength of our Stout with a deep amber color. We used Pale Ale Malt, Crystal Malts and Biscuit malt to give this beer a firm malt foundation. The Hop level is towards the high end, nearly equaling that of the Copperhead. We have chosen to used English hops exclusively for this beer. UK Challenger hops are used for bittering and UK Fuggle hops for dry hopping.
