Jefferson's Golden Ale
This complex golden ale pays homage to our Founding Father and fellow brewer, Thomas Jefferson. We recreated his recipe, employing honey, rye and wheat, just like the beer brewed at Monticello during Jefferson’s time.
STYLE Strong Golden Ale
FORMATS 16 oz can (September 2018), 12 oz bottle, sixtel, 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?” Think roast duck, slow roasted pork belly or charcuterie including prosciutto, sausages and pate´.
YEAR INTRODUCED 1999
