Ryans Magic 5 Finger Discount Pale Ale
Far far far at the country side of Denmark lies a small island called Fanø , where a little brewery called Fanø Bryghus lies. Here the brewer Ryan Witter-Merithew the last couple of years has become famous for being a frontman for the No-Bullshit-Brewing movement in Denmark. Many potent, crazy, extreme brews has turned 11 in the hands of Ryan.
A couple of weeks ago Ryan asked us if we were interested in brewing a beer at Fanø for his farewell party at Mikkeller Bar 19th october. Yes, Ryan is leaving Fanø Bryghus to seek new challenges around the world and we didn’t hesitate to put a ‘yes!!!!’ to that. If there is one person in DK that knows how to handle the hops, it is Ryan and since we have been wanting to do a extreme single hop Citra Pale Ale for quite a while, we fast decided to brew that.
The beer (called “5 Finger Discount”) will be a clean bright single hop Citra Pale ale at 6%. A potent hoppy thirst quencher hopped over and over. We think this is a great ‘salude’ to Ryan and everything he has done for DK microbrewing and really wish him good luck on his future whereabouts.
We will be looking forward to try it together with you Friday 19th October at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade 8BC, Copenhagen V – come and say hello and goodbye!
