With an amazing baseball season fresh in our memory, we brewed Crown Town Ale to celebrate the inspiring achievements of our hometown team. Weeks before the last out on October 29th, we recognized our need and desire to brew a beer as a fan-to-fan celebration with you, the fine people of Kansas City. The electric energy present during the month of October is something to be commemorated. To that end, 750 ml bottles of Crown Town Ale will only be available in the Greater Kansas City Area.
Crown Town Ale, stylistically, is a Golden Ale featuring pale, honey, and Munich malts balanced by a subtle bitterness imparted by Magnum hops. To complement a crisp, citrusy hop aroma provided by Lemon Drop, Saphir, and Northern Brewer hops, we added dried orange peel to the wort right at the end of the boil during the brewing process. Fermentation was carried out by our house ale strain, used in perennial favorites Unfiltered Wheat Beer and Pale Ale, to create light, fruity esters. At 6.2 ABV and 25 IBUs, Crown Town Ale was brewed to be a refreshing beer worthy of everyday drinking, but special enough to celebrate such an amazing run. Delicate in nature, Crown Town Ale is not meant to be cellared or stored for extended periods of time. Please enjoy this celebratory beer while it’s fresh.
