Beer God's Notes

Pennsylvania Tuxedo has this wonderful combination of grassy hops with the spruce tips really make this a standout beer.  It tasted really nice in the late fall/early winter when released and made for a really easy drinking 8.5% beer.

I love the artwork on it too, something about it makes me smile.  Maybe it’s because I enjoy my flannel as much as the next bearded man in the winter, or that I’m originally from Pennsylvania and I know a lot of people who would wear flannel as a fancy shirt.



Our pale ale brewed with Pennsylvania spruce tips

A spruce-infused pale ale, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA.

Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.

A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.
