Amber in color with a perfect balance of malt and hops. Good for all seasons with a dry, crisp finish.
This rye is based on Southern Craft's original recipe that won 2nd place in the 2011 National Homebrew Competition in San Diego. It is the brew that started it all for us. The featured ingredient is Carolina rye malt, which is produced using an heirloom variety called Wrens Abruzzi that has been grown in the South for over 200 years.
In a way, the story of this brew started over 300 years ago when French explorer Sieur d'Iberville noticed a red pole dividing the boundaries between the Houma and Bayogoula tribal hunting grounds along the mighty Mississippi River. The red pole eventually became known as the red stick, which translated in French is "baton rouge." The name stuck, and our Red Stick Rye not only has a name but a place to call home.
