Rye’d With Pride was brewed with rye malt and dry hopped using a combination of Centennial, Idaho-7 and El Dorado hops, then lagered for 8 weeks to perfection. This beer came out with the promised notes of the rye malt culminating in a very refreshing and pleasant pour. Rye’d is one of those beers that is crushable as advertised.

The release was accompanied by several vendor tables, including one run by Cole and Brett, who were auctioning off HTown Beer Guys merch and canned succulent plants. The auction raised an additional $250 for Grace Place.
