Summit Zingiber Cream Ale

Summit Brewing Company has announced the release of Zingiber Cream Ale.

The 22nd beer in the limited release Unchained Series is available now on draught and in 12-ounce can six-packs.

Zingiber Cream Ale is a 50/50 hybrid of ale and lager, brewed identically and fermented separately utilizing unique yeast strains, the company says, then blended after fermentation.

The beer is clean, crisp, malty-sweet, full-bodied and robust, the company reports. The addition of organic Hawaiian ginger adds a bright, spicy dimension.

“Zingiber Cream Ale was a recipe idea born from my desire to recreate one of the lesser-seen All-American beer styles,” says Summit brewer Christian Dixon. “The hops were selected both for their flavor attributes and their German-American heritage.”

The next Unchained Series installment will be announced this fall.
