Crack a Window Experimental Pale Ale

Our annual collab with Indie Alehouse is back! Crack a Window features a single hopped pale ale, that’s all about the hop. Focusing on an experimental hop variety, HBC 692 from YCH Hop Farm, the purpose of this beer is to test the aroma and flavour profiles of a new hop variety.  The finished product offers a light malt body, with a base of 2-Row and wheat, laying down a blank canvas for the new hop to shine.

Sam’s Take

Legend has it, a few years back, Jeff and Sam were on a trip to Oregon to visit a hop farm.  While on the trip, Jeff and Sam were in a cab after touring a few local breweries and sampling some local fare. Well too much food and too much beer caused one of our intrepid travellers to have some ‘stomach issues’.  Upon relieving some pressure in the cab the other traveller begged for relief and asked him to “crack a window, man!”. And ta da, a collab was born.
