Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale
A STRONG GOLDEN ALE
This powerful and complex golden ale pays homage to our Founding Father and fellow brewer, Thomas Jefferson. Yards Brewmaster, Tom Kehoe, worked closely with Philadelphia’s historic City Tavern to recreate this recipe, employing honey, rye and wheat, just like the beer brewed at Monticello.
STYLE Strong Golden Ale
FORMATS Ales of the Revolution Variety 12-pack; 6-pack, 12-pack; 1/2 keg, 1/6 keg
SIGNIFICANT INGREDIENTS Flaked oats and maize; rye and wheat; local honey from Fruitwood Orchards
PAIRINGS Although Jefferson may have preferred to snack on the bounty of vegetables and herbs from his garden at Monticello, you may want to offset this beer’s potency with something hearty, filling and dare we say “fatty,” like roast duck, pork chops with sage butter, or charcuterie.
