Cumberland Corn malt beckons down-home flavor and a rich sense of tradition. The pleasant combination of fresh cornbread and subtle toastiness are balanced by its earthy undertones. Tennessee-grown, this corn malt delivers an ethereal sweet flavor that doesn’t require a separate cereal mash. It complements a wide array of beer styles– especially American Lager— and it makes for a storied, local addition to a Bourbon mash.
Corn based-beers are trending at Southeastern craft breweries; here are some made with Riverbend Cumberland Corn malt.
Alliance Brewing’s Alliance Lager – TN
At Alliance Brewing, beer is a catalyst for uniting people. The ability that a bold house lager has to bring folks together is an impressive one; some would attribute it to its locally sourced craft malt.
A gorgeous clear gold with a frothy head, this lager is super crisp and clean with just a whisper of a light, cereal body. A subtle earthy, sweet flavor from Riverbend Cumberland Corn balances its bright freshness, making Alliance Lager a perfect easy (day) drinker.
Thirsty Monk Contemplate Cream Ale – NC
Doesn’t take a whole lot of contemplation to fall in love with Thirsty Monk’s Contemplate Cream Ale.
Brewed with Cumberland Corn, as well as Riverbend’s Chesapeake Pils Malt and Bloody Butcher Corn, Contemplate packs a lot of complexity for its easy-drinking style. Aromas of sweet almond liqueur, white bread crust, and summer harvested corn lay the foundation for subtle notes of white grape and spiced pear. Fresh cornbread flavor and nutty character allow for a balanced finish. This ale is light, smooth, and crisp with a gentle refreshing bitterness.
YEE-HAW Brewing Co’s Cerveza Mexican Lager – TN
South of the border flavors meet southern hospitality in this flavor profile of crisp Mexican-style Lager.
YEE-HAW’s Cerveza Mexican Lager is a delectable clash of cultures. The classic Mexican-style Lager you know and love is made with locally sourced malts and flaked corn courtesy of Riverbend. The result is a creamy, slightly hoppy brew with a smooth, clean finish. It’s light, it’s crisp, and oh so delicioso.
Beacon Brewing Co.’s Waves of Grain – GA
Oh beautiful, for spacious skies, for Beacon Brewing Co’s amber Waves of Grain Lager.
Waves of Grain is Beacon’s take on a craft American Light Lager. They use our Chesapeake Pilsner malt and Cumberland Corn malt for some southern terroir. Add a hint of fruitiness from a small whirlpool addition of Loral and you got yourself one refreshing beverage. 100% naturally carbonated beer-flavored beer!
