Hey, everybody loves Blondes, right? As is often the case, ours has certainly been around the block a time or two. You see, our founder’s grandfather worked at one time for one of those big ol’ yella beer breweries in the Midwest and he learned a thing or two along the way. Our Blonde is based on one of grandpa’s recipes; a pre-Prohibition-era lager. This one, however, is an ale … we don’t have time or patience for no steenking lagers!
With surprising complexity for such a light beer, the Blonde owes its depth to a diverse grain bill that creates a wonderful cereal-like malt character, while the Hallertauer hops lend just a touch of spicy bitterness.
