Introducing “For You,” a new Pale Ale from Foam Brewers that utilizes 100% local ingredients.
Honoring Our Community by Brewing For You:
Here in Vermont, there isn’t just one thing that makes our community special. It’s the unique combination of passion, vision, collaboration, and opportunity that result in an amazing culture centered around our shared values. Our local community is a camradery, consisting of individuals coming together and working towards common objectives. Eager to be stewards of our community, Foam Brewers has long supported our local farms, consciously and intentionally sourcing locally grown and processed ingredients for use in our brewing process.
It’s something we’ve always done here at Foam, not as a marketing effort, but simply because it’s in our nature. Since the establishment of our Vermont Brewery, each of our uniquely crafted beers have been mindfully brewed using local ingredients derived from our neighboring farms whenever possible. Through this symbiotic relationship, our connection to local agriculture has grown beyond simple monetary support and into supporting a movement focused on developing long term goals and systems around consistently sourcing high quality grain and hops, grown right here.
With that said, we’re excited to announce the launch of For You, a Pale Ale showcasing 100% locally sourced grains and hops. Every ingredient in this beer has been sourced within a 100-mile radius from where we brew and serve it, making For You a particularly exciting reflection of the collaborative efforts amongst the individuals and organizations within our region. We consider the suppliers of ingredients within this release some of our closest partners with whom we take great pride in working with.
For You - A Juicy, Truly Vermont, Pale Ale:
When it comes to beer, it’s never about just one ingredient, but rather a complex blend of water, hops, grains and yeast, interwoven to bring to you a finished product that speaks for itself. We are lucky to have some incredible suppliers here in Vermont, allowing us to produce world class beer from a small footprint. With For You, we’ve curated a blend of ingredients from some of the farms and suppliers that we’ve worked with most consistently over the years to create an approachable, 5.2% pale ale. On the nose, you will find notes of fresh hop oil and citrus forward flavors of Orangina and pomelo on the palate. On the finish, we perceive a variety of stone fruit and a slight dankness. Subtle honeydew melon persist throughout the entire drinking experience, a characteristic we find specific to locally grown hops, our Vermont terroir.
Brewed Exclusively with Local Ingredients:
For You is brewed with a fusion of Pilsen malt, flaked wheat, flaked maize, a favorite classic “C” hop from Whitefield Hop Yard, and a proprietary hop blend designed specifically for Foam with Champlain Valley Hops.
