This is an American pale ale recipe pulled from the old files of The Alchemist Pub & Brewery, prior to the devastating 2011 flood from Hurricane Irene that badly damaged the original brewpub property in Waterbury, Vermont and forced the closure of that location.
If you are looking for a classic American pale ale with a Cascade, Willamette hop profile, here is a great recipe. While it is called a pale ale, this beer will really land you more in the red/amber category than pale.
This rich, Northwest-style pale ale is all about balance and sessionability. Maybe that’s why it won gold at the Great American Beer Festival in 2001 and 2002.
