Our original hoppy American ale.  Dry, clean, well-balanced with a generous dose of American hops.

My brother and I started home brewing in a small garage in Portland. We wanted to make some really good beer, so that we could drink it of course. One winter, after many days of brewing, our fingers numb (the garage was not heated), we decided we should begin to share. So we moved to a bigger garage (our new brewery with heat) and here it is. Cheers!
