Brewed with barley from our farm in central Michigan, Midwestern Pale Ale stands apart from the model of completely hop-dominated pale ales, offering a noticeable degree of malt body to counter the hop bitterness. A blend of floral & herbal hop notes provide the aromatic & flavor highlights, alongside the distinctive contribution of our house ale yeast. A crisp bitterness finishes the experience without being harsh.
Midwestern Pale Ale is a great aperitif. Pair it with delicate dishes where the dry bitterness can clean up some of the fat or richness.
Also pairs well with oily fish (sturgeon, mackerel, blue fish, marlin, Wahoo and smoked versions as well), meat pies or chicken pot pies and burgers.
For dessert, try pumpkin flan, maple bread pudding or bananas foster.
Pairs well with cheeses like Jack, Brick, Brie, Derby with sage, Leicester, Camembert, Manchego, Emmenthaler or Gourmandise with walnuts.
