Florida Beer Company - Indian River Shoal Pale Ale
Int’l Bittering Units (IBUs): 24
Serving Temperature: 38-42° F
Suggested Glassware: Pint Glass
Malts: 2-Row Pale
This American Pale Ale is made with a generous portion of Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest. Expect a moderate hop presence on the nose, with subtle pine notes, but leaning more toward earthy, slightly grassy hops, balanced by notes of toasted malt. On the palate, look for floral, perfumy hop flavors with a strong, edgy hop bitterness and notes of candied lemon peel. In the finish, note a slight touch of scotch and a resurgence of toasted malt notes. Pair with lamb kebabs and grilled veggie skewers.
The Florida Beer Company is the brainchild of company president Humberto Perez, a third-generation brewer whose grandfather founded one of the largest breweries in Venezuela—Cerveceria—in 1929. The company is comprised of a number of brands, with a common theme of Floridian pride. Humberto's vision is to create a regional brewing presence that will bring long-sought recognition to Florida's burgeoning microbrewed beer scene. The Indian River Brewing Company, where these beers are brewed, is a small brewery, located on Florida's east coast in Melbourne. It was founded by Bruce Holt and brewmaster Jack Owen in 1977 (which makes this one of the oldest microbreweries in the country). Each batch of beer is microbrewed by hand with little to no automation—reflecting the company's dedication to using traditional brewing methods to create individualistic beers.
