As the bales pile high, the work day comes to a close. The barn is full of a hard morning’s laboring, and the bale hook claws into its final victim. This beer is your reward, a far cry from the cloying messes served in other glasses. Bale Hook is crafted from local 6-row barley and Wren’s Abruzzi Rye (thanks, Riverbend), with a small dose of unmated wheat to provide a noticeable fresh grain taste. We utilize two old world hops to provide the lemon peel, thyme and lemongrass presence.
