SEATTLE, Wash. – Redhook Brewery is celebrating the Fourth of July with a new brew, American Pale Ale. This hoppy addition to Redhook’s year-round lineup, featuring classic red, white and blue packaging, will be available nationally starting in July 2016.
“Our American Pale Ale is a classic take on the style,” said Nick Crandall, lead innovation brewer at Redhook Brewery. “We wanted to brew a pale ale with pronounced citrus and floral hop aromas. Our APA is a nice balance of lemon notes with bitterness up front and a bright grassy finish. The beer is crisp, flavorful and perfect for summertime.”
Redhook’s take on the American Pale Ale style integrates classic Chinook and Cascade hop characters into this easy-drinking and full-flavored pale ale. At 4.7 percent ABV, the sessionable American Pale Ale is a great beer for any occasion throughout the year, including Fourth of July barbeques, game nights, and casual hangouts with friends.
American Pale Ale will be available nationally starting in early July in six- and twelve-packs, and on draught. For more information on Redhook Brewery, visit redhook.com and follow the brewery on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

About Redhook Brewery
Redhook was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit of early 1980s in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one of America’s first craft breweries with its focus on creating a better beer. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to a Fremont trolley barn that housed The Trolleyman brewpub, to its current breweries in Woodinville, Wash., and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. Redhook will open a 10-barrel brewpub in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle in the fall of 2016.
Redhook’s original brews include ESB, Long Hammer IPA, Extra Special Lager (ESL), and a variety of seasonal beers, including Blackhook, Summerhook, and Winterhook. Redhook beers are available on draught and in bottles and cans around the country. For more information, visit www.redhook.com.
