Slanted Porch Pale Ale
Charleston is a pretty kickass place to live if you ask us, and that's thanks to a lot of little kickass details. We've honored some of those details in other beers - pluff mud, for example. When it came time to add a new regular beer to the roster, historic downtown came to mind, especially historic homes. There's one feature they all seem to share - a slanted porch. Because of the unstable, coastal land they all sit on, the porches (trust us, they ALL have porches) start to slant after years of the ground settling underneath them. Some slant a little, and some slant a lot, making no two porches the same, another one of those aforementioned details.
Slanted Porch Pale Ale, like its namesake, will always be a little different. We've had our eye on a year-round pale ale, but we're not sticking to a single recipe. Expect an ABV ranging from 5% to 6%, and an ever-changing hop profile.
Batch one brewed 1/12/13 5.6% ABV, hopped with Centennial and Citra hops used in the kettle and Cascade for dry-hopping.
Batch two brewed 2/7/13 5.4% ABV, hopped with Centennial and Citra.
Batch three brewed 2/21/13 5.0% ABV, hopped with Warrior, Centennial, Citra.
Batch four brewed 3/6/13 5.6% ABV, hopped with Centennial, Citra, Amarillo.
Batch five brewed 4/27/13 5.3% ABV, hopped with Pacific Jade & a Cascade dry hop.
