May 4th (Star Wars Day) will see the return of Drake’s Brewing’s (San Leandro, CA) Alpha Session. The true session beer (<4% ABV) is their “Nor Cal Bitter,” a hoppy brew that clocks at jsut 3.8% ABV.
With a simple base of 2-row barley, Maris Otter, and C-45 malt, our California style shines through with a classic mix of West Coast hops, followed by a generous dry hop of Simcoe, Citra, and CTZ for a piney, citrusy beer that’s just about perfect as we head into the long, hot, beer soaked days of lawnmower and festival season.
Style: English-style Bitter
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft
