Summit Brewing Company Welcomes Fall with Belgian-Style Pale Ale

As the leaves turn colors and start to fall, Summit Brewing Company is introducing a brand new beer to their lineup for a limited time: Belgian-Style Pale Ale. Read below for more information surrounding the release via Summit Brewing Company.

With spicy and floral European hops, select malts from Germany, England, and Belgium, and a stellar Belgian yeast strain, Summit Belgian-Style Pale Ale offers up subtle malt flavors of graham cracker, honey, and toast, along with mild hop notes of orange zest and thirst-quenching bitterness.

Inspired by the world-class pale ales of Belgium’s West Flanders region — famous for its hop and cereal cultivation — Summit’s new, limited-edition Pale Ale marries a traditional recipe and old-world copper equipment with modern ingredients and a new, state-of-the-art fermentation cellar. The results reflect our classical approach to beer and brewing: No gimmicks. No short cuts. Just the beer we’d want to drink, made the best way we know how. And we think you’ll appreciate that.

“Autumn in the U.S. tends to be dominated by pumpkin beers and wet-hopped IPAs,” says Head Brewer Damian McConn. “Why not offer beer lovers something different? It’s spritzy and refreshing enough for a warm September day, and hearty enough for a cool October evening.” Sounds about as versatile as a nice denim jacket, doesn’t it?
