Shipyard Brewing Presents Pugsley's Signature Series
Pugsley’s Signature Series is named after Shipyard Brewing Company’s master brewer, Alan Pugsley.
Alan is from England where he worked with Peter Austin at the world-famous Ringwood Brewery before moving to the United States in 1986. Since then, Pugsley has assisted with the establishment of more than 65 microbreweries and brew pubs throughout the world.
Imperial Porter – is a full bodied, very dark, malty beer with a good roasted character coming from the Crystal, Chocolate and Black Patent Malts used in the mash. Warrior, English Fuggles and East Kent Goldings Hops balance the malts with a good hop bite. This beer has an OG of 1.070, rounding out after fermentation with just a slight residual sweetness and cutting dry at the finish.
7.1% alcohol by volume.
Barley Wine Style Ale -is brewed in the true English tradition. This is a big beer made with six different malts (Pale Ale, Crystal, Caramunich, Wheat, Chocolate, and Roasted Barley) and balanced with a very full hop charge of Summit, Challenger and Fuggles hops. It is a deep reddish brown color with a complex fruity nose, a very full body, and an interesting balance between grains and hops which ends with a pleasing dry taste. 8.5% alcohol by volume.
Pugsley’s Signature Series ales are available exclusively in 22oz. bottles and in draft in select markets. To fully experience all the flavours, they are best enjoyed at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Available November 2008.
