From Chris Wilson:
This is our upcoming release in the Brewer’s Select Series.
The beer should be available in the Visitor’s Center on Saturday, March 7th.
Echo - “A Deep-Copper Rye-PA”
We have timed the release of Echo to coincide with Philly Craft Beer Week (3/6-3/15). We will be taking part in events nearly every night throughout the Philadelphia Area, including the suburbs, and plan to feature Echo at most of them. Keep an eye on the website for a full list of events. You also have a chance to find it in Maryland, Western PA, Boston, NYC and parts of Florida. A very limited amount of 12oz. bottles will be available at our Visitor’s Center as well.
It will be a 6.8%, 60IBU IPA, brewed with pale, crystal, carapils, and 30% rye along with a good dose of Simcoe and Centennial hops. This deep-copper ale combines the citrus kick of the hops with the spicy twang that comes from 30% rye malt. It is a Winter IPA to bridge the gap between now and Spring.
