The Collective Brewing Project in Fort Worth, Texas has released Mr. Green, a 4.7 percent ABV pale ale that is brewed with pilsner malt, The Yeast Bay’s Vermont ale strain yeast along with Cascade, centennial and Simcoe hops.
“I originally envisioned it as our utility pale ale that would only be available in the taproom,” said Ryan Deyo, found and head brewer at Collective Brewing, in an email to Tenemu. “At 4.7% abv it’s super drinkable. We use pilsner malt for the base instead of regular brewers malt for a crisp flavor that i think plays well with the hops.”
Collective Brewing first released Mr. Green last year, but that version used Citra hops instead of Simcoe, and replaced the Vermont yeast strain with the brewery’s Chico ale strain.
According to Deyo, Mr. Green has been so popular with patrons that the brewerywill file for label approval in order to put the beer in bottles at some point in the future.
