explicitapaAnother day, another APA.  Not that this is a bad thing, in fact it’s a great thing.  Who among us doesn’t enjoy the citrusy, fruity aromas and flavors of an American Pale Ale?  You don’t?  Well, you may be a communist, because this is an American beer, for real Americans.

But I digress, Charleville Vineyard has begun kegging its Explicit APA and now it’s throwing a party at The Royale on Wednesday, June 17th begining at 6PM.   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%”

So go out, enjoy this beer and prove to everyone that not unlike Hulk Hogan, you’re a real American.
