Channel Crossing

Crossing the channel
I’m a little overwhelmed
By all the flavor

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Brian of Stillwater Artisanal Ales teamed up with Stephen of Oliver Breweries to create the collaborative Channel Crossing Ale. Described alternatively as an Extra Special Belgian or a Belgian Bitter, this English/Belgian hybrid was debuted at the Pratt Street Ale House on Thursday May 20, 2010 in a variety of serving styles and flavors. I tasted the draft version and the cask version served from a firkin with French oak. They also had three pins, each with the ale dry hopped with a different variety of hops. One was dry hopped with Kent Goldings, one Bramling Cross, and last Czech Saaz. It was a fun night.
