Anchor Brewing (San Francisco, California) has officially announced the release of Brewers’ Pale Ale – Nelson Hop Blend as the premier offering from its new series of American Pale Ales made with an evolving hop blend.
Developed to be an engaging new line of beers “brewed by brewers, for brewers”, Brewers’ Pale Ale is “a bright and fruity American Pale Ale bursting with hop aroma and flavor” sourced from a hop blend that will steadily evolve as time goes on. The first version of Brewers’ Pale Ale will showcase Nelson Sauvin, a unique hop from New Zealand that provides “a deliciously fruity character.” Hop lovers can expect Brewers’ Pale Ale – Nelson Hop Blend (5.3% ABV) to offer a “crisp, refreshing and flavorful” experience that boasts “strong aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus peels and dank piney hops.”
“Our brewers work together to develop and constantly evolve recipes until they’re absolutely delicious and uniquely Anchor,” said Brewmaster Scott Ungermann. “For this beer, our first step was to create just the right malt bill to showcase our favorite hops and then blend those hops within that framework. While it took many iterations and taste tests to make a killer everyday pale ale, our brewers were up for the challenge. The result is a modern American Pale Ale with the fresh aromatics of an ever-changing blend of our brewers’ favorite hops for a bright, crisp, delicious and perfect go-to beer.”
Brewers’ Pale Ale – Nelson Hop Blend is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California and throughout the rest of Anchor Brewing’s distribution area. Although the Brewer’s Pale Ale brand is listed as a Year-Round, the “Nelson Hop Blend” will only be available for a limited time as “Anchor brewers . . . continue to experiment with different hop varieties, showcasing evolved recipes and new hop blends throughout the year.” With that said, be sure to get your hands on some Brewers’ Pale Ale – Nelson Hop Blend while you have the chance. Prost!
