Industrial Red (XRED)
Always looking for a new challenge, our crazy brewers were sitting ‘round the ol taps a while back and thought, “Let’s expand on the whole ‘Industrial’ thing we have going on.” Why not red? Red’s cool, right?
Our first test batch, though supremely tasty, got us in trouble with the staff at our Alehouse because it came in at 9.2% alcohol, resulting in some, shall we say ‘out-of-the-ordinary’ customer behavior! We pulled it back a bit and provided a beer that’s big and malty with a distinct citrusy hop character; certainly a worthy addition to our formidable Industrial lineup!
The nitty-gritty, for all you beer nerds:
Original Gravity: 17 ° Plato; 1.068
Alcohol by Volume: 8.5%
MALTS: 2-row Pale, Vienna, Wheat, Weyermann Cara-red
HOPS: Chinook, Galena, Cascade, Simcoe
