Ripple Pale Ale Collaboration

Ocelot Brewery & 50 West Brew Club

In April 2022, we collaborated with Ocelot Brewery Company and produced Ripple. 

"Ripple is our latest collab with 50 West Homebrew Club, a Loudoun County group we’ve been proud to support, host, and exchange ideas with since the brewery’s earliest days.

This 5.3% hoppy pale ale essentially started with our Stratagem recipe. The homebrew club made some alterations, and then we scaled that up for our system. In the end, we settled on a base of Epiphany Modern Pils, with support from Epiphany Vienna and Briess Carapils malts. Atop this simple canvas, we deposited kettle and whirlpool additions of Cascade for a balanced bitterness, then dry-hopped the beer with our darling Azacca. The mix of old and new school Pacific Northwest varietals summons a fruit salad of mango and citrus, underpinned by grapefruit rind and a slight herbaceousness."
