Tioga Pass is also inspired by our journeys around Yosemite National Park & the Sierra Nevada mountains. To reach Yosemite we used a mountainous road nearly everyday. It became one of our favourite driving roads due to the spectacular scenery and amazing lake views.
Our take on the American pale ale uses a base of US and European hops to create a stronger pale ale with a gentle fruity body and bitter finish. We then add Simcoe and Cascade hops after brewing into the conditioning tank. This dry-hopping creates a more pronounced floral and woody hop profile in the finished beer.
The label design shares some of the amazing views from the State Road 120 - Tioga Pass.
