From Breckenridge Brewery:
Breckenridge Brewery kicks off summer with a new year-round offering, Mango Mosaic Pale Ale. This refreshingly crisp pale ale leverages the exotic, tropical attributes of Mosaic hops to accentuate a healthy amount of mango. The calculated combination results in a fruit beer that offers unique aroma, medium body, and a cleansing finish. Mango Mosaic is an all-occasion beer; one to be enjoyed on the patio among friends, after a hike or day on the slopes, or alongside a great meal.
"We've used Mosaic hops for several years in other beers, and we love the floral, tropical fruit, earthy characteristics that it gives - great aroma and a sweetness unlike other hops we've experimented with," explains Todd Usry, President of Breckenridge Brewery. "We thought it would pair naturally with a tropical fruit like mango, so we got busy in our pilot brewery up in Breck to find the right balance of hops to fruit. It's been a fun project, and we're excited to get it to market."
Mango Mosaic follows a flurry of new beer that Breckenridge has introduced since opening its new production brewery in Littleton, Colorado, a year ago. Coming on the heels of other new releases like Nitro Vanilla Porter and 471 IPA Barrel Series, Mango Mosaic brings a lighter, “hops meets fruit” addition to the brewery's year-round portfolio. Available in 6-packs of 12-oz bottles and on draft, the 5.5% ABV (alcohol by volume) pale ale will be available in 35 states where Breckenridge Brewery beer is sold.
