Beer Description:
Brewed to commemorate the signing of Virginia Senate Bill 604 into law following the 2012 legislative session, SB 604 beers will be offered by the brewers (including Devil's Backbone, Starr Hill, and Hardywood Park) who lobbied to make the bill a reality. Effective July 1, 2012, Senate Bill 604 gives commercial breweries in Virginia the right to sell glasses of beer on-site. For more information on Senate Bill 604 and what it means for Virginia breweries, click here.

In the case of the beers released with this name, the "SB" stands for "session beer" referring to ales or lagers of a milder alcohol content (typically lower than 4.0% ABV). The brewers who spent weeks lobbying on behalf of SB 604 with senators and delegates at Virginia's General Assembly plan to release different variations of SB 604 beers that will be session beers only available for consumption on site at their respective breweries.

The "Special Bitter" version of this beer offered by Hardywood is very sessionable, at 3.8% ABV. A moderate caramel malt character and some fruity notes provide plenty of complexity and flavor to this beer, which beautifully complements citrusy, high alpha American aroma hops. Dry-hopped with slightly peppery horizon hops, this beer displays the high degree of balance that has become a signature of Hardywood's beers. A relatively dry finish keeps this beer both refreshing and enticing.
Best with:
Hardywood SB 604 - Special Bitter is a perfect match for just about anything off the backyard grill, but particularly burgers or steak, which has some carmelized notes to harmonize with the beer's malt character. Relatively hoppy, this beer stands up to spicy heat found in many Asian or Mexican dishes.
