On January 5, 1939, Amelia Mary Earhart was declared dead. Earhart had been missing since July 2, 1937, and was an aviation pioneer and author. She was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, that she was awarded as the first Aviatrix (female avaitor) to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Her plane was lost during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 1937. She disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
As to the beer:
Free State Brewing is located in Lawrence Kansas. It was opened in 1989, and was the first legal brewery in Kansas in over 100 years.
The Legend of Atchison born aviatrix Amelia Earhart lives on in Earhart’s Amber Ale. This delightfully balanced amber ale uses a blend of English Pale Ale, Caramel and Roasted Malts along with a bit of flaked barley to provide a smooth yet flavorful malt character. The malts are balanced with domestic Fuggles hops in the kettle and the hop back and a fine hop aroma comes from dry hopping with English challenger hops. Like its namesake, smooth yet bold, colorful and intriguing. O.G. 10.5/1042.
