Description:  Pouring a rich medium copper with a dash of haze and a finger of frothy off-white foam. "Rye & Ginger" is made with heaps of freshly zested ginger, and uses 40% Rye malt to add a touch of spiciness.  On the nose loads of ginger, mingling with citrus, spicy rye graininess and hints of cinnamon. Upon first sip, ginger atop a rye “spice” malt base, with even more ginger tingle.  Hints of citrus/lemon character round out the sip. Light to medium bodied, highly efflorescent, with a moderately dry finish. 

A note about rye beers:  Rye beers were once commonly brewed and popular in Bavaria, but fell out of favor after 1516 when the German Beer Purity Law—the Reinheitsgebot—was adopted. The law specified that only barley, hops and water could be used in the brewing of beer (no one yet knew that yeast was a major part of the brewing process).
