American Pale Ale

J-Lo & Chew-zacca’s Wild Ride Pale Ale

Homebrewers Association
Homebrewers Association

Jarrylo and Azacca are new hop varieties on the brewing scene, which we gave away during a recent membership offer.

Jarrylo is named for the goddess of fertility and springtime. The high-alpha hop adds spicy fruit notes with hints of pear and orange. Azacca on the other hand is named after the Haitian god of agriculture. Also a high alpha acid hop, Azacca is rich in citrus and ripe fruit character, with notes of mango, pears, apples and dash of pine needles. The American pale ale recipe below is a perfect way to harmonize the qualities of both varieties into a fruity-delicious homebrew! Big thanks to the folks over at BSG HandCraft for putting together the recipe for us. Cheers! Read More
