Newport Storm is re-releasing LocAle! “While similar to the last version, the brewers couldn’t resist making interesting tweaks to this one,” says founder and president, Brent Ryan. Little changes have been made to this honey colored saison ale such as teaming up with another great local honey from Annie B’s Honey Farm. The finish is also drier than the last version, giving rise to more spicy character. Annette, a local bee keeper, turned her one hive into career of caring for over 80 hives that rest on two and a half acres in Cumberland, RI. It’s her Clover Honey that adds a touch of sweetness to this golden ale.
The pure saison yeast worked around the clock like a busy bee creating hints of lemongrass, pepper and ginger. Golding, Equinox and Tettanger hops don’t bitter this beer, but rather bring out fragrant aromas of apple and pear. Canada pale, Canada wheat and honey malts round out the brew for a balance.
LocAle is 7% ABV and is available in 4-packs and on draught starting this week [7.17]! For more information on where you can track down this limited batch brew and all of Newport Storm’s beers go to NewportStorm.com.
