Together, we’re brewing a lager infused with hot ginger and a touch of cayenne (which emphasizes the ginger heat) before fermenting on a blend of oak honeycombs and hops. This may seem like an odd concept—and let’s be honest, it IS an odd concept—but the finished beer more than makes up for the seemingly strange combination of flavors. The ginger is bright and crisp, the cayenne falls just below the heat threshold, and the oak adds a delicate roundness to the finish. This ultra-crisp lager is very balanced and incredibly drinkable and will be one of the sleeper hits of the Beer Camp pack.

    Taps clear copper with a nice beige head. Aroma presents sweet ginger and malt. Flavor offers sweet ginger, fresh malt, and woody hops. Mouthfeel delivers decent body and fizz. Go Ginger!

    I’m a little picky about my lagers, but this passed the test. Decent amount of malt and other flavors. Spicy ginger up front with some more heat lingering from the cayenne. Has a hazy light brown to orange appearance. Texture is nice too. I’d sample this again.
