Riot Act Rye Ale Release!

Posted on: April 9th, 2012 by Ryan

By proclamation of the Track 7 Brewing Company it is unlawful to stay home on Friday April 20, 2012 or assemble in groups of 12 or more without that assembly being at the Track 7 Tap Room.  Alright, it may not be illegal to no-show; it would just be uncool.  Now that you have been warned, prepare to join us as we release our second seasonal — the Riot Act Rye Ale.

The vital stats on the beer are:

NAME: Riot Act Rye Ale

STYLE: Rye Ale

HOPS: Cascade, Chinook, Magnum, Mt. Hood, and Willamette

ABV: 7%

IBUS: 45

OG: 1.068

DESCRIPTION: Our Riot Act Rye Ale was designed to be a showcase for rye malt.  Therefore it is a more malt driven beer than several of our other offerings.  For those less familiar with rye, the flavor that best characterizes rye in a beer is “spicey.”  But, just because the beer is malt driven does not mean it is without generous amounts of hops.  The Riot Act Rye Ale includes 11 hop additions, including two massive dry-hop additions.  The hops, however, were used more for flavor and aroma as oppossed to bitterness.  So for all you hop-heads, there are plenty of hops in this one.
