THE BEER LIST
DRAFT / Lot Nº 3 IPA: This American-style IPA is aggressively hopped at a rate of over 2 lb. per barrel. Big notes of citrus and pine complement a reserved but firm malt backbone. Pairs well with Indian food, jerk, Cajun, burgers and spicy seafood. ABV 6.8%
DRAFT / Sprung: Our spring seasonal is a refreshing light golden ale. Brewed with honey, hibiscus and chamomile, fruity subtleties abound despite the accessible and easy drinking nature of this beer. Honey imparts a subtle floral note as well as a touch of sweetness. Pairs well with salads, feta, citrus dressings and crab cakes. ABV 4.9%
Exile Red Ale / Inspired by the pale ales of England, this beer is red in color, assertively hopped but well balanced. Fruity and aromatic, generously dry hopped with Cascade and East Kent Goldings. Pairs well with steak, lamb, burgers, fish and chips and cheese. ABV 5.9%
Alpha Six / The yeast makes the beer. No more is this so than with EVO’s Alpha Six. The yeast we use hails from the Ardennes region of Belgium and is known for creating classic Belgian ales with complex features and a smooth, balanced finish. And the alpha rating of Ardennes yeast? You guessed it, six. That little yeast alpha is the reason you’re holding our beer in your hand- a sessionable Belgian-style ale that goes down easy. Pairs well with roasted meats, pork, and seafood dishes. ABV 4.5%
DETAILS: Barn & Brew is free to join with complimentary tastings of food and beer with full pours of beer and select food items available for $5. ID required. Additional parking available in adjacent lot next to Ivy Provisions.
