Brewers Alley is located in the heart of downtown Frederick. Our “Frederick’s Finest” Beer Sampler basket features the award winner “Brewers Alley India Pale Ale and is one of our most popular beer baskets.
“1634 Ale” was created by Tom Flores, master brewer at Brewer’s Alley, following research of historic recipes and raw materials available in centuries past. “We used ingredients that would have been found in the austere conditions of early colonial Maryland,” said Flores of his rye-based ale recipe that also includes malted wheat, molasses and caraway. Flores says caramel and dark malts round out the flavor of the “lighter bodied ale.”
This style originated in the area of Cologne, Germany. It exhibits the more desirable features of both ales and lagers. Our Kölsch is pale gold with light body and a slightly dry palate. It has a mild bitterness and delicate hop aroma. This beer is a clean and pleasant thirst quencher, which earned a Bronze Medal at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival.
India Pale Ale (I.P.A.)
A British style, the I.P.A. originates from the aggressively hopped and high-alcohol beers which were shipped to the British troops in colonial India. Pale to medium amber in color.
A very pale beer brewed as a lager and which has a crisp, assertive Czechoslovakian Saaz hop character. This beer took 6 weeks to produce because the strain of yeast we used has a slow and cold fermentation, which results in a very smooth beer.
