Pints & Purls Edition 24: Bridal Veil Rye Pale Ale

This is the twenty-fourth in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!  None of the breweries or yarn companies are compensating me – these are just my opinions on my personal experiences!

Brew: Bridal Veil Rye Pale Ale

Brewer: Telluride Brewing Co.

Malts: German Rye

Hops: Cascade, Magnum, Chinook, CTZ, CitraIMG_2501

Flavors: Very earthy and, almost creamy.  This beer has a complex flavor profile with a tiny bit of spice at the end.  Plenty of hops but easy enough to drink so that non-IPA fans would also enjoy it.

Knit Pairings: This beer would really highlight that cold-weather knitting you’ve been up to this time of year.  Because it’s brewed in Telluride, CO at an altitude of 8750′ it’ll be a great match for hardy winter wear that’ll last a lifetime but is still pleasurable and simple to knit.

Notes:  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and are enjoying plenty of knitting time as well!

Let me know what you think!  Suggestions for future beers, more/different information to include, this is a work in progress so I won’t be offended by constructive advice!
