“Summer in the Gorge might just be our favorite season because our pub deck, overlooking the mighty Columbia, provides the best view in town. Sailboarders and kiteboarders skip across the river using brightly colored sails, while whitecaps and mountains provide the backdrop for the perfect beer to raise a glass with friends. This thirst quenching pale ale is brewed with a blend of crystal and 2 row pale malts. Willamette and Golding hops provide a slightly fruity note to round out the light malty flavor,” said Jamie Emmerson, Full Sail Brewing’s Executive Brewmaster. English Pale is available in 6-packs and on draft for 90 days only from July to September when the next beer in the series will be released.  (ABV 5% IBU 30)

Look for Full Sail English-style Pale Ale to be featured on the shelves of grocers everywhere, from July thru September.
