Now on Tap - BBB

In celebration of 13 years of McCoy's Public House we're proud to present a new batch of our popular Anniversary Ale known as Triple B. We hopped this badboy with a blend of Pacific Northwest (Chinook & Horizon), English Fuggle & German Hallertauer hops for a dominant hop profile, while creating a balance of the citrusy American hop qualities and the spicier, more floral notes of European varities. It's then dry-hopped for an even stronger hop aroma. Clean malty sweetness is found in the background, while some fruitiness, either from esters or hops, is also prevalent. This big, bold & beautiful beer defies classification sitting somewhere between an Old Ale, ESB & Barleywine.
