Foliage Pale Ale

Fall is here and so is our fall seasonal – Foliage Pale Ale.

The name Foliage constantly reminds us of 2 things:
1) Fall
2) The Simpsons

Marge: Next to Spring and Winter, Fall is my absolute favorite season. Just look at all this beautiful foilage.
Lisa: It’s not “foilage,” mom, it’s “foliage.” Foo-liage.
Marge: That’s what I said, foilage. It doesn’t take a “nucular” scientist to pronounce foilage.

The brewery crew spent weeks trying to figure out what to call the beer. We couldn’t come up with anything. As luck would have it, two of the Brew Chief’s brothers (Peter & Mike) were visiting the brewery. When asked what a good fall word was, Mike promptly said Foliage and the name stuck. As a reward, we made him work the bar.

About Foliage Pale Ale
Pale Ale – ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 40

Brewery regular Dean H. described the beer best:

Foliage is an amber coloured ale with a full bodied citrus bitterness that punches well above its weight. It’s warming sweet malty toffee flavor persists long after this tasty beverage has left your palate. This beer is the closest you’ll get to supping a classic pint of cask conditioned Bitter in a British pub without taking the 5456 mile flight to Old Blighty!
