About S-55 Special Pale Ale by Flying Boats Brewing

This pale ale features a rich blend of malted and caramel-based barleys coupled with the dominant hop characteristics of Cascade for bittering, flavor and aroma. Dry hopped with Cascade and Amarillo to produce a nice aroma to enhance the drinking pleasure.

The story behind the name: The storied Italian general Italo Balbo, later to be named Commander-in-Chief of the North African Forces during WW2, lead a squadron (24) of Italian S-55 Savoia Marchetti hydroplanes to Shediac in 1933 on his way to and back from the Chicago World’s Fair.
