American Pale Ale
Edward (1917-2002) is our grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his five children. In his honor, this American Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Edward’s well. It is unfiltered and dry hopped.
Russian River Brewing was an early source of inspiration. In many ways, my hoppy beers—and this American Pale Ale—were influenced by both Vinnie Cilurzo (Russian River) and John Kimmich (The Alchemist). Edward reflects those archetypal first impressions of Simcoe®, Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo®, as well as the emotional memory that was conveyed in experiencing such expert orchestration.
