At Moody Ales, we make Craft Beers for every day drinking. Beers you’ll want to have more than one of. Quality, balanced, flavourful Craft Beers – brewed by hand on Brewer’s Row in Port Moody, BC by our amazing team.
Dan and Adam started Moody Ales to share our passion for Craft Beer with as many people as we could. We opened our doors in 2014 after spending the summer building our brewery with our own hands. Our passion for Craft Beer got us going, sharing that passion for Craft Beer with others keeps us going.
Inspired by the hazy beers that all you kids are going crazy for these days, our brewer Sho started working on this recipe over a year ago. He had never tasted a North East Pale but decided to brew something similar. After some experimentation he landed on using typical North West hops and leaving out the oats and lactose sugar commonly used in that style. Those decisions leave us with a very juicy, well balanced beer with a lighter body than it's North East cousins. Huge Citrus gets a massive addition of Cascade and Mosaic late in the brew, and is then dry-hopped with copious amounts of Cascade and Mosaic hops while the yeast is still active, leaving a Huge Citrus aroma and flavour - notes of tropical fruit, stone fruit, orange, grapefruit & pomelo. We used Sacc Trois yeast to ferment this beer to really increase the juicyness, hazyness and to add a bit of funk. This medium to light bodied beer is very well balanced, juicy, not sweet and VERY crushable.
Mix together German Yeast, American hops, and pineapple juice and it adds up to sunshine. That's beer math. But enough studying for today - it's summertime. This beer may be cloudy, but the weather isn't, so go outside, enjoy the sun, and cool down with this sessionable, fruity, refreshing brew.
Robyn, who created our Vienna lager recipe, likes to pair this beer with bratwurst. Sho, another Moody Ales brewer, prefers it with carnitas. Makes sense—this style, originally developed in Vienna in the 1840s, lost popularity in Europe over the nineteenth century but thrived in Mexico with Austrian emigrant brewers. So, as you enjoy our malt-forward yet clean amber lager, remember that from Austria to Mexico to Canada, pork and beer unite us all.
