So this is pretty exciting news! We have been working the folks over at Arcade Asheville on a special beer release to celebrate their 1st anniversary on New Year’s Eve. That evening we will be releasing the first kegs of “8-bit Ale” to the public starting at 5PM.
The “8-bit” name was chosen in honor of the early Nintendo game console that we all grew up playing…..you know the one I’m talking about.
The beer recipe features our Heritage Malt, which comprises over 70% of the total malt bill. The remaining portion is made up of specialty malts such as Munich, Crystal, and Red Wheat. Hop character leans heavily on the floral and citrus notes provided by late additions of the Centennial and Cascade varieties. Dry hopping with several pounds of the wildly popular Citra variety also lends a distinct tropical fruit aroma to this sessionable delight.
In short, the perfect beer to sip on the patio or the dance floor!
