Sixteen Counties (2015)
There are, indeed, “Sixteen Counties in our state”, and it is after these sixteen counties of Maine that this beer is named. Sixteen Counties is bright amber in color and offers aromas of clove, sweet malt, and pine. The first sip opens with flavors of bread, malt, and caramel and finishes clean, dry, and with a lingering hop bitterness.
Brewed with a 2-row blend from Buck Farms in Mapleton, Maine, as well as caramel malt, biscuit, and brown malt, we hop this beer with locally grown, freshly harvested “wet” Centennial, Cascade, and Mount Hood hops from the Hop Yard in Gorham, Maine and Aroostook Hops in Westfield, Maine, and ferment it with a Belgian-style pale yeast.
