Claremont Craft Ales offers a great range of creative craft beer with outstanding quality. They take a traditional brew and give it that extra twist that really seems to set it apart from other brews. We’ve had the opportunity to try several of their craft beers and each one has been an experience in itself. Today we’re bringing forth their Jacarinda Rye IPA. While not many craft breweries use rye as an ingredient in their brewing process, it’s really nice to find those that do and sometimes the results are absolutely outstanding. This is one of those times.
While we’d love to say that no brewery cares about the cost of creating a craft beer, that would not be true. Cost is an issue for any company, be it a brewery or the local farmer raising free-range chickens. Rye is an ingredient that requires a greater volume in order to get the same result in terms of a brew’s ABV, which makes it much less cost effective than wheat or barley. This has resulted in far less rye-based brews on the market, but as a sideline, it has given us a chance to really enjoy the results when a brewery chooses to create this type of brew.
Claremont Craft Ales is already known for having some interesting brews, but this one really shows their dedication to the quality of each brew they create. Jacarinda Rye IPA has a great aroma, flavor, and finish, which certainly impressed us, as many brews cannot seem to accomplish all of those at once. Our impression of the brew is outlined as follows:
We hope you get a chance to check out some of Claremont’s outstanding craft beers. If you’ve come across any that you have not found here on the blog, let us know in the comments.
