Shipyard Rye Pale Ale

The Maine Black Bear has a long, fruitful relationship with the state of Maine as the mascot of the University, and this brew is in homage to this fruit loving American native.

Brewed with Rye Crystal malt, Shipyard Rye has a spiced, nutty taste balanced with caramel toffee flavours. As with all Shipyard beers, this brew is packed full of American hops and the Amarillo, Citra, Cascade, and Summit combine for an upfront punchy orange aroma and lingering citrus tang.

Food matches

Darker, caramelised malt textures enable us to pair this with a richer, heavier foods. Strong bbq flavours hold their own against the pungenet orange and caramel flavours, whilst sweet caramelised flavours enhance the balanced and full bodied temperament of the beer. BBQ Pulled Pork or Sticky Ribs would be a decadent feast with this beer, but there is an option for pairing with a delicious desert too, like caramel covered Toffee Pudding or salted caramel slathered waffles with pecan and griddled banana.
