The sun is shining (mostly), the weather is warming (some days), and we feel inspired (or is it hopeful?) to bring a new seasonal specialty beer on tap. Our brewer just finished Commuter Gold, the fourth ever batch of this Standing Stone beer, and we’ve tapped it for those wanting a lighter bodied ale to help bring along spring.
About the Beer
This bright golden ale gets its spicy, herbal aroma from Sterling hops. The crisp, medium bitterness & lightly toasted finish are balanced with a refreshing mouthfeel. 4.6% abv, 20 IBU
- Organic Pilsner
- Briess Ashburne Mild
- Briess Victory
- Bittering: Sterling
- Flavor/Aroma: Sterling
Food Pairing Suggestions
The mild bitter finish of Commuter Gold makes it a great partner for light-bodied food with a bit of oil and richness – think flash fried veggies and seafood, or tossed salad with a hearty dressing. Here are our suggestions from the brewpub menu:
Calamari with Fried Lemon Wheels and Jalapeños
Fish & Chips
Join us soon for a pint of Commuter Gold, and get into the commuting spirit with bike travel this spring. Help us fill our fourteen-bike yellow rack in front of the brewpub when you visit!
