Days of the Beer, September 27

The beer for today is Lancaster Brewing Company Amish Four Grain Pale Ale.

On September 27, 1777, Lancaster, Pennsylvania was the capital of the United States. The Continental Congress fled Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War as it had been captured by the British. After spending the day there, they went further away from Philadelphia to York.

As to the beer:

Our multi-grain pale ale summons the sweetness of oats, the complexity of rye and the smoothness of malted wheat, balanced by a generous dry-hopping of imported, noble Saaz hops.

Malts Used: 2 Row Barley, Rye, Oats, Wheat, Carmel 40
Hops Used: Willamette, Fuggles, Saaz
OG: 13.8 ABV:5.60% IBU: 28
So go support your revolution with a beer run to Lancaster PA, and think about how our forefathers were on the run to get there too.
