On a recent trip to Chicago, Jeff’s wife Hannah picked up a precious little gift for us:
Ever since we interviewed Half Acre Beer Co in November 2007 we’ve been hankering to try some of their beers. Gabriel and the gang have been nothing but helpful as we try to navigate the murky waters of starting a brewery. So we were obviously anxious to see if they could brew a decent beer. Survey says… Yes. According to Half Acre:
Half Acre Over Ale is what we call an American Style Bitter. This deep brown beer is brewed with six varieties of malted barley and balanced with three generous hop additions. You?ll find a mild malt body with bitter bones.
And as an added bonus, our friend Ted had a hand in the recipe formulation for the beer. We found the Over Ale a deliciously balanced beer. Both easy-to-drink and flavorful. Congrats to Half Acre, and look out for them if you’re ever near Chicago!
