#18 against the grain brewery "aunt Claudine's salty melons" abv: 4.5% ibu: 17
The Summer was made for backyard BBQs. Family. Beer. Plenty of beer. Because nothing washes family down better. This delicious and light ale was made with 100 lbs of house-smoked wheat malt imparting the very essence of grilling out. We then added 2.5# of salt to the boil for a savory note to compliment that watermelon. 12 pureed and added to the fermenter, post-fermentation to be exact. The resulting beer is a refreshing affirmation of life. Aromatically smoky, slightly sweet and grainy with a briny finish. The answer to all those sweaty hugs you’re going to have to endure from your favorite Aunt.
