We are ending 2017 feeling incredibly grateful for all of the support you’ve shown us. We hope that gratitude has been expressed in everything we do. That’s certainly the goal around here. As Christmas and New Years are rapidly approaching, we’re releasing our two final beers of the year; Sokol Pilsner and Ward 5: Columbus Pale Ale.
Sokolnice is a village nestled in the barley growing region of Moravia, Czech Republic. It is also the birthplace of our co-owner, Susan’s father. Her dad is not only a fan of the Pilsner style that the old-country is famous for, but he was also instrumental in inspiring and encouraging Jeff (Susan’s husband and co-owner/brewer at Muddy York) to start brewing his own beer a decade ago. Sokol Pilsner is a tribute to him. It is light bodied with spicy and herbal notes and provides a perfect showcase for the noble Saaz hop.
Ward 5: Columbus Pale Ale is the fifth entry in our growing Ward Series of single hop pale ales. We tweaked the recipe a bit on the recently re-released Ward 2: Centennial Pale Ale and this new beer follows that formula but substitutes Columbus for Centennial and shows what a difference a hop can make. This one is dank, dank, and dank. So, if you like Dank, this is your jam.
Both are available on tap and in the retail fridge.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and thanks again for being such great people.
See you soon,
Muddy York Brewing Co.
