L.A.P.A. , an American pale ale...

This American pale ale is one of my first inspired formulas. The acronym associated with this brew stands for Larry's American Pale Ale. Larry is one of the few people in recent times to truly whether intentionally or unintentionally make me a better version of myself. He helped to make me a more dedicated and hardworking individual. I wouldn't be this better version of me without having the fortunate opportunity to work along side him for the past three years. Our time in those rolls has since come to an end.

Larry is also one of the very, very, select few that truly supported my dreams of becoming a brewer and for that he will always have a place in my brewer's heart. This beer is for him. I hope that I truly capture everything that he is looking for in his beer.

This is the second beer that will be brewed by MoonDown Brew Co.  For this brew I have selected Apollo and Columbus, and Mosaic hops from Yakima Valley Hops. The Steeping grains consist of Pale, Aromatic, flaked wheat, and flaked oats. This brew will also be dry hopped as part of the brewing process. I find that by doing this you truly get that hoppy aromatic smell and taste we all seem to be looking for these days.

This is

“Larry's American Pale Ale”.
