Big Tropical Aroma in a Small Package

ABV: 4.5%

Ways & Means is a session IPA brewed with rye and just the right amount of Citra and Centennial hops for pleasing bitterness. It boasts complex aromatics of citrus and tropical fruits, finishing with the typical clean, refreshing character for which our beers are known. The very first keg of this beer was served in the United States Capitol to members of the U.S. Congress Ways & Means committee. Both Democrats and Republicans found that it was a beer that all could agree upon.
