We brewed Commonwealth Ale in honor of the historic advance toward beer as food. To achieve this flavorful session we added amaranth, millet and teff - grains that nourished the earliest civilizations - along with Tamalpais Barley grown and malted in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
A medium, light bodied ale with mild nutty character, Commonwealth is balanced by earthy and grassy hop aromas and flavors. Enjoy this easy-to-drink, malty delight while supporting the arts and helping feed those less fortunate. Malty notes up front. Bready, toasted, slightly nutty malt flavor from the Tamalpais and other specialty malts. Very mild hop balance that is a bit earthy and grassy. Pleasant medium-light body that finishes crisp and easy. Commonwealth satisfies the body and soul! Enjoy!
This beer pairs well with most foods. Artisan breads, poultry, fish, and pork even a burger are great. Commonwealth also pairs well with a cheese plate, picnic foods, fresh salads and a variety of sweets from cakes, to custards, to short bread.
