We're trying something new at Clawhammer. We're going to start brewing beer and documenting it, like we've done with distilling. We've always been homebrewers and are excited to share our passion for it with you. If you've never tried it, maybe these articles and videos will inspire you.
First up is a Rye Pale. This is a recipe that Emmet has been brewing for years. It's one of his favorites, and rightfully so. It offers that classic rye spice, but isn't too intense. It isn't super boozy either. It's a great spring beer.
