We had to wait a long time for Tod and Galen Mott’s Tributary Brewing to open. That finally happened earlier in September and I made my first trip shortly after they opened. They have a great tasting room area setup with a bar and some picnic tables that give plenty of places to sit.
When I visited they had their Pale Ale, Gose and the London Session Brown, I tried all three and left with a growler of Pale and a small growler of the Gose (see next review). The brown was nice but not a style that I drink a lot of.
The pale ale comes in at a very reasonable 4.7% ABV. Color is a great unfiltered orange with minimal head from the growler. The growler lost most of its carbonation which is unfortunate as I only let it sit a day before opening. Hoping they change to the black caps on the growlers soon as they seem to hold the carbonation better than the white caps.
Aroma and taste are great with a solid citrus hop profile. Finish is clean making this a great beer to drink on its own, with a meal or really anytime. Great start and really looking forward to trying more beer from Tributary.
Cons: Lack of carbonation (growler cap issue?)
Alcohol Content: 4.7% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
