Unknown Hospitali-tea, a tea laden amber ale returns

Unknown Hospitali-Tea

Unknown Hospitali-tea has return once again to the brewery’s lineup.

It’s the south, and sweet tea is king. The Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery created a caramel malt heavy amber ale, and added black tea leaves and orange blossom honey. The hops mimic lemons. The result? A boozy sweet tea style beer

Made with black tea leaves and sweet orange blossom honey, this beer is on the lighter side with great caramel malts. The finish of sweet tea and hops provide a new floral lemon aroma. Plain and simple, Hospitali-tea is refreshing.

Unknown Hospitali-tea is a 12 once can and draft offering for the summer.

Style: Amber Ale (w/ Black Tea, Honey)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

Return: June, 2016

Bronx Spring Pale Ale with Tea

Bronx Spring Pale Ale with Tea hits tap this month. The newest release from the Bronx, New York brewery is brewed with two different teas.
