Pouring a bright golden orange color, well-hazed, and with a robust head of off-white foam, Skyline Falls looks good as it rests in the glass. Lusciously fruity aromas burst forth right away, and it’s a complex fruitiness, too. Look for prominent layers of tropical fruit and flora, with additional facets of stone fruits, melon, citrus juice & zest steering towards lemon-lime, and a lightly herbal zing. The aroma party continues in the flavor, too, as those fruity elements cascade across the palate. Perceived hop bitterness is typical for a New England-style IPA, which is to say lower than traditional American IPAs, yet there’s still plenty of bite to balance the very clean and lightly tangy malt character and lead to a dry finish which lingers with a bit of zesty, fruity acidity. For food pairings, we’d look to lighter grilled meats and fish, like marinated chicken and vegetable skewers, tacos with chunks of grilled white fish and a lightly spicy mango salsa, or grilled drumsticks with a lemony basting sauce with some grilled corn on the cob. Cheers!
Situated in the Shenandoah Valley, Brothers Craft Brewing began business in December of 2012, the realization of a dream of three brothers: Adam, Jason, and Tyler Shifflett. Originally named Three Brothers Brewing, the brewery rebranded in April of 2015 to avoid potential conflicts with other marks and to better represent the sense of brotherhood and camaraderie among the entire staff of the company – why limit the brotherhood to three, after all? The roots of the business go back to when Adam, the eldest brother, started homebrewing while still in the Navy, where he had worked as a nuclear powered submarine engineer. After leaving the Navy and developing his skill as a brewer, he and his brothers joined up and started a production brewery to serve the Harrisonburg area and the surrounding Shenandoah Valley, which the brothers had always called home.
Today, the brothers are still as focused as ever on producing the highest quality and freshest beer for their local community. But, their community focus doesn't end with the beer; the brewery supports numerous charitable initiatives including December gift drives for Mercy House, the Souper Bowl Food Drive in February, the United Way's Stuff the Bus campaign in summer, and, one Friday per month, Cask for a Cause, which features a beer brewed specifically to support a local nonprofit. Currently the brewery produces several year-round beers plus multiple seasonals, and a growing list of limited and one-off brews including barrel-aged, wild, sour, and experimental beers.
