Pouring a bright, rich golden color with a robust head of pale foam, this golden ale from Sawtooth offers up a good look, and engaging aromas, as it rests in the glass. Look for some floral and lightly citric hops – evoking some orange and lemon – underlined by a base of pale, lightly honeyed malts reminiscent of graham cracker. Those malty notes jump out right away on the palate, offering notes of fresh bread and mild toast, with that honey malt component contributing to a round, smooth impression that forms a delightful core for this brew. The hops provide a pleasant balancing character that comes across quite floral, mildly citric, and with just the right amount of balancing bitterness. Fruity esters akin to apple skins and white grape juice pop through here and there, as well, and the whole thing comes across just super drinkable and very sessionable. For food pairings, we’d go with lightly breaded or fried dishes, and for a sweet treat, apple turnovers with a puff pastry sound particularly good to us. Cheers!
Founded by friends Paul Holle and Kevin Jones, Sawtooth Brewery opened for business on 11/11/11 in the Clarion Hotel in Ketchum, Idaho. Paul and Kevin realized the local scene was lacking in craft beer culture, so the duo envisioned Sawtooth as a manifestation of their passion for creating beer to meet the needs of Sun Valley and the surrounding areas. Sawtooth is dedicated to brewing locally inspired premium beers that reflect the beauty of the recreational and wilderness areas of Sun Valley, Idaho. Paul brought his extensive home brewing experience and expertise while Kevin added his business acumen to make Sawtooth Brewery the leader in craft beer culture that it is today.
They put their passion to work opening the Public House in Ketchum and the Hailey Brewery and Taproom, where they also moved their brewing operations after they quickly outgrew their original spot in Ketchum. Additionally, Sawtooth offers catering services, and they also run the Outpost Food Truck and an eight-tap draft trailer. Their success has led them to produce over 1,000 barrels of delicious craft beer per year and expand their distribution throughout Idaho.
In 2015 Sawtooth Brewery became the first Sun Valley brewery to can their beers, which protects the beer from damaging light, and also makes the beer lighter for transport and requires less additional packaging. In addition to their lineup of year-round, seasonal, and limited-release beers, Sawtooth also now produces the Atmos brand of non-alcoholic beers, as well as the Creekside line of hard seltzers. We are pleased to introduce Sawtooth Brewery to our club members and hope you enjoy these beers as much as we did. For more info, visit them at www.sawtoothbrewery.com.
