The All American Pale Ale is a West Coast style pale-ale. It has a slightly darker color than a standard pale ale and is packed with Cascade hops from the Northwest area of the country. The flavor of this great ale will stand up with any food that you care to drink it with. The American Pale Ale has American 2-row pale malt and includes English crystal in the first load. They use whole centennial and Cascade hops throughout the boil.
The Rock Creek Brewing Co. is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. Rock Creek’s brewery is a traditional English brew house, employing traditional brewing processes. The brewery moved its Pennsylvania brewing facility to Raleigh, North Carolina back in 1999. The Raleigh brewery is double the size of the previous one, and features a small tasting room and beer garden. Customers are invited to tour the new facility and sample Rock Creek’s 20 plus beers. Rock Creek also has food and drinks available at the brewery.

Currently, the brewery produces five year-round beers including: River City ESB, a full-bodied traditional "Extra Special Bitter", Black Raven Porter, named for Edgar Allen Poe's famous Raven - Richmond being the home of Poe - a deep, dark London style porter, Nuttrageous Brown Ale, an English-style nut brown ale brewed in the tradition of Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, Rock Creek Red Ale which took the Gold at the 1997 World Beer Championships, Devil’s Elbow IPA, and Rock Creek Gold, a lighter-bodied Golden Ale. Rock Creek also brews an number of Seasonals including Wild Summer Passion Wheat Ale, a Raspberry American Wheat beer, Pumpkinhead Ale, a spiced pumpkin Ale, and Winter Passion Spiced Ale, a high gravity holiday Ale. Lastly, if you get a chance to swing by the brewpub yourself, you’ll be able to try one of two Cask Conditioned Ales, a Roasted Stout and/or an Extra Special Bitter.
