Cream Ale: 6% | IBU: 28 | SRM: 5  

Can you strive for meh? Should you? At the height of midsummer there is genius in a beer that is “like sex in a canoe.” Simple, clean, classic flavors put together in a format that is meant to stop you from being thirsty more than to transcend. For Canoe, we looked to the indigenous classic of the Atlantic Northeast, the cream ale, and respected its most traditional constraints. Barley and corn, on ale yeast, fermented cold and decorated with hops more than flavored. The simplest of American beers for the simplest of reasons: It’s hot, early on a summer evening, and you’re thirsty. Drink Rabaska ‘cause so far that meat hasn’t learned to grill itself.
