Hey everyone, I got another announcement from North Peak Brewing Company. You know the _other_ beer in the short fat stubby bottles. Also they make some of my favorite IPAs. Seriously, if you don’t know you should check them out. They are easy to find if your local shop carries them, just scan for the aforementioned stubby bottles. It looks like they are launching a new year-round sessionable ale, the Hail Pale Ale made with… wait for it… “maize flaked corn and blue corn grits” It is sure to please any Michigan Wolverines that give it a try. Check out the Press release below for more information.  But before that let me leave this here.


(Dexter City, MI) —North Peak Brewing Company has just released a year-round tailgate beer. Hail Pale Ale is golden, light bodied and delicious. This well-balanced beer, made with maize flaked corn and blue corn grits, celebrates all things Michigan. Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook and Crystal hops add flavors of citrus, apricot, and peach.

With an ABV of 4.2%, this beer is perfect for enjoying while cheering on your (and our) favorite team. Hail Pale Ale was created to pay tribute to the ferocious wolverine and the Great Wolverine State.

“We wanted to create a beer that was light and refreshing but with hop overtones,” says Northern United Brewing Company Head Brewer Sean Brennan. “This beer can show fans true colors, inside and out. Just in time for football season, Hail makes the perfect tailgate beer for any sport.”

North Peak Hail is available in bottles and draft now and is available throughout the great state of Michigan. Go Blue!
