Last summer, we released Peach Silo, our Kolsch style ale with loads of peaches added to it. It was pretty awesome. I wanted to revisit that recipe this summer, but push it in a slightly different direction. Let the peach bring sweetness, but balance it out with hop bitterness into something highly sessionable. I swapped out the corn from Peach Silo with oats and sourced the peachiest hops out there, then added a ton of peach puree.
No romantic backstory, no obscure scientific techniques, just a pale ale with supporting peach flavors, perfect for summer weather.
