COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summit Extra Pale Ale is not a beer brewed only for beer snobs. Just the opposite. It’s a beer for everyone to enjoy: construction workers, stock brokers, farmers, sales people, clerks, teachers, lawyers, doctors, even other brewers. Its light bronze color and distinctly hoppy flavor have made it a favorite in St. Paul, Minneapolis and the rest of the Upper Midwest ever since we first brewed it back in 1986.

Very hoppy with a unique, slightly nutty, bitter aftertaste. This is the way a Pale Ale should taste. Most Pales tone down the hops to broaden their appeal. Summit EPA pushes the hops and stands out as a great regional brew for ale lovers.

Just found a supplier in metro Detroit (Grosse Point Woods) and am thrilled to see this beer make its way further east.

the best beer I have ever tasted. THe taste is excellent with just the right amount of hoppy taste. Well worth trying if you are visiting Minnesota.

Perfect. Best beer in upper Midwest. Summit’s other creations leave a little to be desired, but this is the standard for American Pale Ales. Clear amber Brown, creamy off white head, bitter, stinging hoppy taste, goes down smooth and creamy, very aromatic. Drink culminates in a crisp sharp aftertaste not produced by many beers; Most IPAs or PAs have a somewhat dull lingering aftertaste; Summit’s is razor sharp and tingly. Most popular beer in Minneapolis/ St. Paul for a reason.

This beer has it all. And, it’s had it all since 1986. This beer led the way for micro brew in Minnesota. It is the pioneer in the Beer Belt. Fantastic beer, with all around appeal. Solid, not fancy, made for the ages.
