About Steam Punk Pale Ale
A combination of our classic Hammerhead Ale fermented with an Anchor Steam yeast strain, Steam Punk Pale Ale is a blast from the past. Anchor Steam yeasts are a unique strain of lager yeasts which ferment at higher ale temperatures. These yeasts saw wide use on the West Coast before the advent of refrigeration.
The word “steam” is a reference to the method 19th Century brewers used to cool their hot wort. To accelerate the cooling process, the hot wort was pumped up to shallow cool ships on the roof of the brewery where it would steam as it cooled naturally in the open air. While brewing technology has improved, these yeasts have stuck around because of their unparalleled flavor and aroma.
To ensure an abundant Northwest hop aroma, Steam Punk Pale is dry-hopped with a generous dose of Falconer’s Flight hop pellets. Expect this beer to exhibit a slight lager crispness and spicy malt character, with hop notes of lemon, grapefruit, and pine.
