Half-Pipe Tart Pale Ale
Half-Pipe is a tart, citrusy and totally rad American pale, perfect for the bright, sunny days of spring and summer. It’s kettle-soured with lactobacillus and generously dry-hopped to balance the tartness with bright hop character and aroma. This beer is inspired by the rad individuals who get air and grind — on rails and curbs — in alleys and ‘burbs. It’s a shout-out to all of the fearless extreme sports athletes. The world is your playground.

Food Pairings: Sour beers seamlessly slice through rich meats like brats or slow-cooked fatty cuts of pork and beef. The tangy bite of a tart pale ale also pairs well with beer-battered, deep-fried cheese curds, funky aged Brie or sharp cheddar, and plays well with fruits like peaches and oranges.
