Morganton, NC — Catawba Brewing is now pouring a Small Batch Red Rye IPA (5.8 percent ABV). Brewed with six specialty malts, the beer has a sturdy malt backbone and deep ruby color. Rye lends complexity to the malt bill with its characteristic spicy notes, complementing the caramel and toasted barley of its Red Ale base. A generous addition of Simcoe and Amarillo hops yields assertive bitterness, while contributing bold aromatics of citrus and pine.
Red Rye IPA is Passport Beer #40 in Catawba’s 2017 Small Batch rewards program. Brewed in their Asheville South Slope brewhouse, the beer is available in Catawba’s four tasting rooms, and in limited distribution.
