Chesapeake Cream Ale

Chesapeake Cream Ale

Virginia, United States
4.6% ABV • IBU 19 • SRM 4

Barnhouse Brewery makes their cream ale just like the german immigrant brewers did back in the day, by using corn in a “cereal mash”. They grind dent corn from a local farm into grits and then boil it before adding it to the main mash. The resulting beer is very light and refreshing with a slight corn sweetness in the flavor and a subdued hop presence to let the graininess come through.
