Barley's Brewing Company - Firkin Good Ale

About the Ale:The proprietors of Market Bar, Wayne and Pete, are old friends of Barley's. They've been selling a fair amount of our beer since they opened and were interested in having us brew a beer specifically for them. We conspired (over beers) with Ian, Barley's wholesale manager. Market Bar sells a lot of margaritas, and we decided that a margarita inspired Mexican style beer would be a good fit. Wayne and Pete spent a day in the brewery collaborating, and we brewed a blonde beer at a refreshing 4.8% abv. The subtle hop aromas of Honeydew Melon, Orange, Strawberry and Tropical Fruit are from German Huell Melon. We added the zest from a 40 lb. case of limes (thanks for all the knife work Wayne!) and a judicious amount of sea salt. We're calling it Cerveza de Mercado, and this thirst quencher is only available at Barley's and Market Bar
