Bayhawk’s Honey Blonde Ale is brewed with a combination of 2-row pale, Wheat, Carapils and Munich malts. Perle hops are used up front for their bittering contributions, while Liberty and Centennial hops are added in later additions throughout the 90 min. boil for both their bittering and aromatic characteristics. The brewery uses a special local orange blossom honey to produce the beer’s unique flavor and sweetness. Jon uses a 1056 American Ale yeast strain.
:Immediately note a very clean, fruity nose in this clear, light golden, medium-bodied beer. Look for a sweet malt and honey flavor which carries over into a dry finish. A slight taste of wheat evident in the body. Overall, a very clean, crisp and refreshing interpretation of a Honey Blonde Ale.
Founded in 1994, the Bayhawk Brewing Co. is located in the heart of Orange County, California. The state of the art brewery consists of a 17 barrel brewhouse and eight, 50 barrel uni-tanks which are all enclosed by glass walls allowing all of the customers at the brewpub to view the brewing process. David Voohies, former homebrewer gone entrepreneur, runs the brewery while masterbrewer Jon Newman oversees the brewing process. Jon holds a degree in Microbiology from the University of California.

In addition to the two beers that we’ve featured this month, the brewery also produces 3 draft only beers, a Chocolate Porter, a Bavarian styled Hefeweizen, and their California Cerveza, described as a Mexican Ale. Bayhawk Ales celebrate the rich history of the Bayhawk Osprey in the Back Bay of Newport Beach. The brewery supports the Orange County Bird of Prey center which rehabilitates and releases over 100 raptors back into the wild every year.
