Blue Collar ESB

This British-style ale is a traditional version of Extra Special Bitter. Blue Collar is deep amber to copper in color, full-bodied, with balanced malt & hop bitterness. This beer is brewed from Montana-grown and malted 2-row Metcalfe barley, along with British crystal and black malts, torrified wheat, and some flaked barley to give it a smooth finish. It is well-hopped with Magnum and East Kent Goldings for bitterness, and finished with East Kent Goldings.

Food And Cheese Pairings

It’s a British-style ale so how about some fish & chips. This would also go well with meatloaf or roasted chicken. A mild English cheese such as Lancashire or Leicester would be good with this beer.
