Staves Brewery Session Ale

Staves Brewery

This beer is truly made with love. Founder Steve had a few beers brewed for his wedding and, since many of the guests were coming in from from the UK, it made sense to have an English pale ale as one of the options. The beer, named for Steve’s son, Charlie Ryder, was such a hit at the wedding that Steve decided there should be a mid-strength version of the beer available all year round at his brewpub.

Just like many of the wedding guests, the East Kent Golding hops and British ale yeast travelled across the world for this beer. The malts, on the other hand, are more local guests, with base malt coming from Barrett Burston and specialty malts from Gladfield. Light and bright hoppy characters begin proceedings, along with a smidgen of bitterness, but the malty notes you’d expect from an English pale ale come through more and more as the minutes wear on.

If anyone has any reason why these hops and malts shouldn’t be joined to create this delicious union, speak now or forever hold your peace. No? Good. Then we can proceed.
