Red Hare Brewing (Marietta, GA) took a trip to Oakshire Brewing (Eugene, OR) over the winter. The two breweries struck a friendship that leads us to this summer offering, based on Oakshire’s Ill Tempered Gnome Winter Ale.
On a recent trip to Oregon, while seeking shelter from a freak blizzard, head brewer from Oakshire Brewery invited the Red Hare crew to warm up with their sour barrels and hearty winter ales. As a nod to their Ill Tempered Gnome Winter Ale, we decided to collaborate on a summer version, an India Pale Lager. With this collaborative effort, we were able to get enough Citra hops to amok this beer a go. This India Pale Lager has the biscuity, malt flavor profile of a Lager, with the intense bitter, tropical citrus tones of an IPA.
