Pints & Purls Edition 7: Marble Red

This is the seventh in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!

…………………………………..IMG_9376

Brew: Red Ale

Brewer: Marble Brewery

Malts:

Hops: Crystal, Cascade and Simcoe

Flavors:  This is a robust red, almost smokey but not like a campfire.  It’s malty, crisp and smooth with a medium to light finish.IMG_9380

Knit Pairings:  Because this is a robust beer, I recommend using a hearty, rustic yarn like Fancy Tiger’s Heirloom.  Knitting useful, workhorse projects like warm hats and mitts without too many delicate details would be best.

Notes:

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!
