Remember beer that tastes like beer? Beer that on paper appears simple and straightforward, yet when it hits your palate you immediately pick up on the nuances of the water profile, the distinctive yeast esters, the delicate hop aroma and flavor paired perfectly with expressive character of the malt. This harmonious balance is a beautiful thing that allows the ingredients and the brewer’s innovation to truly shine in the end result and is something we at Lime Ventures are always seeking to sip on. So when we were first introduced to Dutchess Ales, you can bet it was love at first sip!
Dutchess Ales began in New York as a project to recreate the delicious, balanced traditional real cask ales from the UK here in the US. Yet in recent years, co-founder Mike Messenie found immense success in creating a series of ‘hybrid’ ales, blending the most loved aspects of US and British brewing culture. The beers being produced by the fine folks at Dutchess Ales are refreshing, balanced, and innovative!
