explicitapaWe celebrated our nation’s birth this past weekend.  You know what’s a great way to keep the celebration?  Not by drinking any ordinary Pale Ale, but by drinking an American Pale Ale.

For those of you who missed the Charleville Vineyard Explicit APA release party at  The Royale here’s your chance to try the Explicit.  The International Tap house will give you another opportunity to try the new Explicit APA by having a party beginning at 6:30PM on Wednesday, July 8th.

Not only will you be able to talk to Charleville brewers and enjoy their newest release on draught, but they’re bringing up a cask for consumption as well.

Here’s a description of the beer from the sexy new label that you see on the right:

“American Pale Ale is not only the standard but the foundry for what has inspired the craft beer movement. Here at Charleville we wanted to celebrate the beer style that stands as the corner stone for what has made American craft brewing so great. Our Explicit APA is brewed with five additions of hops prior to the wort passing through the Hopback on its way to fermentation. To complete this full bodied ale dry hops are added during cold maturation to create a hop forward ale, with a transcendental copper hue.

14 Plato (2 row, Carapils and Crystal malts)

30 IBU (Cascade and Centennial hops)

ABV 5.4%”
