This summer seasonal pours a golden-straw hue, lightly hazy, with a robust cap of crisp white foam that laces well as we drain our glasses. The nose on this APA captured us immediately: luscious, juicy stone fruit, candied citrus, tropical notes conjuring mango, pineapple, and passion fruit, hints of Rainier cherry, and a supporting dash of exotic spice. The story continues in the flavor department, too, with the hops providing their complex, fruit-forward profile accompanied by touches of herbal spice and tropical flora. Look for the malts to come through super clean and satisfying, offering a dollop of residual sweetness as a foil to the moderately firm hop bitterness which ultimately dries this pale ale out nicely from mid-palate to finish, where it lingers with a hint of citrus zest. Pair this tasty summer pale ale with chicken or fish tacos with mango salsa, grilled citrus marinated chicken, or a snack of lightly aged cheeses. Cheers!
Roadhouse Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by award-winning homebrewer Colby Cox and noted restaurateur Gavin Fine. Originally from Delaware, Colby's first foray into brewing came working on the bottling line at Dogfish Head, and by 2007 he had begun brewing at home. After deciding it was time to expand his homebrewing into something more commercial, he teamed up with Gavin who was eager to partner. The duo's shared vision was to create exceptional craft beer and build a brewpub boasting synergy between beer and cuisine, with each complementing the other. To that end, they cleared out the billiard room to make way for brewing equipment at Gavin's Q Roadhouse, which formed the foundation for Roadhouse Brewing Company.
In the summer of 2017, Roadhouse expanded their brewing operations into a new state-of-the-art facility featuring a 30-barrel brewing system and the ability to package their beer for retail sales throughout Wyoming and beyond. Not long after, Roadhouse opened an experimental gastropub and brewery in Jackson Hole's historic Town Square. With distribution in Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, and Montana, Roadhouse currently produces five year-round brews plus over a dozen seasonals and collaborations. Additionally, they've been awarded B Corporation Certification for their social and environmental initiatives, including support for the Teton County Search and Rescue Organization, the use of heat recapture and solar power, and the provision of spent grain to a local family farm. We're happy to have partnered with Roadhouse this month, and they are excited for our members to try their beers. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did, and as much as the Roadhouse crew enjoyed making them! For more info, visit them at roadhousebrewery.com.
