Drake’s Blonde is our lightest style offering in the year round lineup. To make this beer, we looked to the traditional beer of Köln, Germany, the ever-refreshing, balanced, and pale Kölsch, as an inspiration. While our Blonde is more Californian than what you’d find in Köln, its light body, balanced maltiness, and floral, spicy German Noble hop profile make our Blonde both incredibly approachable and extremely refreshing. Try our Blonde on a hot summer day alongside some fresh local seafood or lighter salads.

Food Pairing: German dishes, salads, chicken dishes, grilled foods, fish, shellfish and spicy foods

The Public™ Pale Ale is brewed in the classic American Pale Ale style. Assertive bitterness backed by C-60 and Vienna malts which lend notes of rich, yet semi-dry caramel. Then followed up with a nice white grapefruit and citrus aroma that begs for a follow up sip.
