Abra-Kolschdabra Hemp Pale Ale

American Pale Ale | ABV: 5.1 % | IBU: 37 | SRM: 5

In honor of National Comedy Month (April), Asheville Brewing is showing a series of classic comedies combined with special, small batch beer releases to provide the perfect drinking accompaniment for each movie.

In conjunction with the special showing of comedy Half-Baked, Asheville Brewing will release a special beer, Abra-Kolschdabra Hemp Pale Ale (not a Kolsch). The movie will take place at our Merrimon Avenue movie theater on Thursday, April 20, at 7 p.m. The beer will be released on draft the same day at 5 p.m. at our downtown and north locations.

For this brew, we press and mash the hemp seeds from the plant’s flower, which imparts a nutty flavor, but not a lot of fatty acids, so the pour has a proper head. This also helps retain the hemp seeds’ nutritional value. This Hemp Pale Ale was hop bursted (late boil kettle additions that create big aroma and flavor) with some resinous hops, including Nugget (of course).





Pairing Notes:

Pairs well with Doritos and Full Metal tots.
