Laurelwood Taps Bay Laurel Ale

Friday August 6, 2010, Laurelwood Brewing Company taps a new beer loaded with a plenitude of malts and hops. Brewmaster Chad Kennedy says this beer is “One of the more unique beers we’ve created.” This pale ale is made with six different malts including, barley, rye and wheat as well as four varieties of hops. To make it even more exciting, the beer contains fresh Bay Laurel leaves that were added in the fermenter and conditioning tank. Kennedy says the result of this 5.7%, 40 IBU brew is “a balanced pale ale with the pleasing aroma of fresh bay leaves- quite distinct from the dried version.”
