This complex, yet drinkable beer is a blend of pale ale and stout. The aroma is a combination of hop from the pale ale with roasted notes and just a hint of smoke from the stout. The rounded body of the beer starts with sweetness from the caramel malt in the pale ale and finishes with aggressive roasted fullness of the stout. The finish is crisp and bitter, but with no astringency. This perfectly blended beer is the marriage of two excellent individual beers coming together to make one phenomenal brew.
A lower-alcohol version of a classic American-style pale ale. Perfect for lunchtime quaffing or following a heavier brew, this beer perfectly balances toasty, nutty malts and citrusy Cascade hops. There is an even balance of heavy, bready malts and light, citrus-like hops. This ale is brilliantly amber-orange in color and pours a dense, snow-white head that lingers and forms a beautiful lace as the draught is drunk.
Hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken, salads, mild to medium cheeses
Saranac Big Moose Ale is an American Pale Ale with a kick. The medium-bodied malt sweetness is balanced by a nice crisp bitterness from hand selected centennial and cascade hops. Look for a vibrant citrusy hop aroma that will leave you craving another swig!
A light, refreshing American Pale Ale with enough hoppy characteristics to know that it’s definitely a San Diego native. A pale straw color with an ample white head and pronounced herbal aroma, the flavor is clean with sweet notes of apple and pear. Liberal hopping with Cascade and Nugget provide a nice citrus-accented bitterness
Hamburgers and hot dogs/cookout fare, chef's salad, mild to medium cheeses
Midwestern malted barley provides a pedestal for you to experience the flavor and aroma of the citrusy Northwestern hops which are the showcase of Hangar 24’s version of a true classic. What makes Hangar 24 Pale Ale special is its smoothness. Carefully selected hops added at just the right times during the brewing process, including post fermentation, give a deep hop flavor without the coarse bitterness that some associate with pale ale.
Great with spicy Mexican dishes such as enchiladas and chile rellano. Spicy shrimp dishes or grilled fish. Fine cheddar cheeses.
