FILLING FOR GROWLERS
BRIDGE RD BREWERS THE HARVEST ALE
Shrouded in secretary is this annual fresh hop harvest brew. Apparently the hops used are from the local Rostrevor Garden, varieties: unknown! Brewer Ben tells us that it has changed quite a bit from previous versions, with the hopping suitably more robust. Essentially a pale ale base, with copious amounts of new world hop varieties used for a vibrant fruity aroma & robust bitterness on the finish.
*If you don’t already have a growler, bottles are $15 each, while a fill of Bridge Rd Harvest is $25.
