Saint Archer Pale Ale tap

Yesterday’s Mystery Beer Revealed

Pitchers, pints and flights. Yesterday’s Mystery Beer was tasted, tested and consumed in a variety of sizes with several people taking their best guesses: Lagunitas (that’s not Southern California), Enegren (their Foliage Pale Ale is the latest addition in their taproom, but not here), and Surf Brewery (we’ve had their County Line Rye on tap before, so it can’t be that). But at least one person did “guess” it correctly… after who knows how much research prior to coming in to taste it. 🙂

The Mystery Beer for January 6th was Saint Archer Pale Ale from Saint Archer Brewery in San Diego, CA.

From the Saint Archer Brewery website:

Saint Archer decided to launch our brand with a Blonde/Kolsch-Style Ale, a Pale Ale, and an IPA because these are 3 styles that we reach for most often. We also feel that these styles best represent our goal of creating beers that are flavorful, approachable, and that appeal to the wide range of palettes among today’s beer drinkers.

Balanced toward the hoppy end of the spectrum, this straight-forward, California-style pale is eminently sessionable. Crystal and Munich malts provide a backbone to showcase the bright, citrus, piney notes of Cascade, Chinook, and Simcoe hops.

5.2% ABV, 40 IBUs

Come in for pint, 1/2-pint, 6oz (alone or in a flight with 3 other beers), or even a pitcher with friends!
