Em Day’s Pale Ale is a modern West Coast–style hoppy pale ale with just enough malt complexity to make it interesting as a pale ale, but dry and light enough to allow for high drinkability and crispness, with the citrus, berry, and tropical hops shining through.
It was a collaboration with Emily Day (emily-day.com), who is one of the top-ranked beach volleyball players in the world. She helped Project Barley (projectbarley.com) brew the pilot batch of this beer, and some of the proceeds of the sales of the beer go to her charity of choice, the Allison Dewart Memorial Scholarship Foundation (admsf10.org).
