COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1828, the University of Virginia created their own fire company made up of students, professors and servants. Their sole fire engine was called the Hydraulion, a pump wagon with the waterpower of 16 men. The UVA Fire Company left their mark for almost 100 years before giving way to the town of Charlottesville’s Fire Department. Our Hydraulion Red is a nod to not only UVA’s firefighters, but the brave men and women everywhere who risk their lives every day, while saving ours.

This Irish-Style Red is a perfectly balanced beer with a great caramel sweetness alongside a tangy, citrusy hop profile.

Pours copper, overly huge light tan head. Aroma is bare hints of malt, despite the large head. Taste is sweet, caramel malt, some hop tang, actually pretty pleasant and drinkable. Very carbonated mouthfeel.

On tap at the brewery. taproom Pours with red-brown body that has good clarity and that is topped by a good white head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass. The mild aroma seems off, with medicinal notes. The flavor has almost no trace of this off-aroma, instead reflecting mild hops and sweet malts. Very mild bitterness. Medium carbonation and body.
