This ale is brewed with a half-ton of caramelized malts for a rich copper color and toffee flavor. After adding the perfect mix of hops for balance, we warm ferment the beer to bring out a hint of dried raisins and currants.
Beer-brined bacon, crumbled feta, balsamic reduction, and fresh pecorino-romano. Red Trolley’s bold toffee and caramel flavors contrast the roastiness of the sprouts, while the beer’s smooth finish tempers the tangy cheese and rich balsamic. And did we mention there’s bacon?
Bring the beer home. (Ask you server for details.)
