New Specialty Beer: Hop Night is Back!

casmapA brewpub favorite, Hop Night is back offering the best of two worlds to the craft beer lover: big hop flavors found in an IPA combined with the malty notes of a stout or porter. Relatively new to the beer world, this style is known as Cascadian Dark Ale.

Cascadian Dark Ale gets is name from its dark-as-night color and the big hop flavors favored in many Northwest ales. Our Hop Night balances the piney, citrus like characteristics of an IPA without overpowering the smooth, roasted malts used in the brewing process. You will notice prominent hop-forward notes with a creamy smooth body and a medium mouthfeel.

Hop Night is a big beer, which will pair well with foods that can stand up to its bold flavors. Our Ginger Teriyaki Ribs, Standing Stone Cheese Burger, Italian Sausage Pizza, or Black Bean Chili are perfect matches. But don’t be afraid of the Night, and try experimenting with anything you think might complement its dark side, such as the caramel flavors of Deep Fried Brussels Sprouts or Stir-Crazy Chocolate Cake.
