RyePA made with Carolina RyeTM

New Belgium's Hop Kitchen release RyePA is made with 40% Carolina RyeTM malt.  This is the first time that a beer made with North Carolina craft malt will be given this degree of national distribution.  The malted rye has been grown in the state since the Civil War.

Brewed with a staggering amount of floor malted rye malt from Riverbend Malt House, this beer is brimming with big hop flavors. Galaxy, Cascade, Simcoe and Mosaic hops round out the hop profile. Big, juicy, fruity hop flavors are complemented by a spicy rye finish. 

What's the Haps?

Beer RyePA of course!

Music from Asheville-based Tellico with former members of Dehlia Low and Town Mountain
