Our 2013 hop harvest special release, fRYEd Fresh-Hopped Rye Pale Ale, will be fresh-hopped* with Chinooks from the Still Wind Hop Farm on Colorado’s Western Slope imparting tropical fruit notes to its flavor and aroma. Generous amounts of toasted rye add complexity with a spicy, nutty flavor.
The Ryehopper began as a fall seasonal and has now found it’s way into our regular line-up. The brewers noticed a lack of rye beers in the Asheville area and wanted to fill that gap. This beer represents assistant brewer Chris Richards’ first recipe released by the brewery. The malted rye contributes both a rounded maltines and a sharp earthy flavor, bridging the maltiness of the barley and the bitterness of the hops. In essence, the Ryehopper is a hoppy rye beer. Seriously, what else did you expect?
Bigger, bolder, and hoppier is what you get in Green Flash's Imperial Red Rye IPA...how unusual! This is quite possibly the most amount of flavor that can be packed into a glass of red ale. Columbus hops set the stage for the newly available Mosaic hops (released in 2013) to shine through the rich crystal malt base and a touch of rye malt adds a spicy dryness to accentuate the hop character further.
This hazy golden brew appears to be a classic witbier with its bright notes of orange citrus & coriander, but there’s a bit more mischief up its sleeve. Behind its sweet exterior lies an intriguing blend of white sage and rye for an earthy, spicy, and thoroughly refreshing brew
This big and bitter, slightly smoky Rye IPA is lavish in complexity; a rich, dry, malty, hoppy, dark, dark, big, big, beer, made with a rare barley strain imported from Germany. Yum! Only available at Station Tap Room in the Mount Snow Base Lodge.
Food Pairing: Try it with BBQ Brisket or Pulled Pork.
German Pilsner, US Rye, and UK Crystal Rye malts create a beautiful orange-red beer with a crisp spiciness from rye malt complemented by pine, citrus, and fresh ginger from US Chinook hops. Refreshing, quenching but full-flavored with a biscuity malt flavor underpinning the hops’ flavor and aroma.
BBQ, burgers, grilled meats or poultry, salads with summer fruit, citrus or vinegar based dressings. Flavor is robust enough to stand up to these spicy foods but the beer is quenching and refreshing to complement outside cooking and summer flavors.
Ticket to Rye is a Rye I.P.A. that offers the imbiber an opening act of rye spice, nicely woven into a hearty, bitter backup from an entire band of Nugget hops. The harmony created by these ingredients is just what any epic show calls for.
