Vernal Equinox

English India Pale Ale

Crafted by homebrewer Gary Layton, this beer originated as the Gold Medal Winner of our IPA JAMBEEREE Hombrew Competition, chosen from over 50 entries. Maris Otter and crystal malts provide its full body, while Equinox and Galaxy hops add intricate flavor and firm bitterness. The English yeast strain gives the beer a full mouthfeel and interesting complexity from its distinctive esters. Slight adjustments were made to Gary’s original recipe to brew on a larger scale. Gary brewed this beer with us in August before we submitted it to the 2016 Great American Beer Festival. His beer’s quality was recognized with a Silver Medal at this year’s GABF Pro-Am Competition.
