WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 30 Aug 2013 - Rivertowne Brewing Hala Kahiki Pineapple Pale Ale

It was a really unique show today on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz.  First off both Webster & Nancy were out of town on their cruise…and while we have done shows with out one or the other, only once did we do a Friday BeerBuzz without both Nancy & John.  That show was done during their previous cruise and I co-hosted with Joe Thomas & LA Tarrone.  Today for the first time it was just Rob & I, and considering Rob has never co-hosted a BeerBuzz before I think we did a great job and had a lot of fun.

Our brewery today comes to us from Export PA and they are relatively new in the Northeastern PA markets.  Rivertowne  Brewing was started by Andrew Maxwell, but not in a traditional manner.  Turns our Andrew was a chemist by trade, and his work with Smith Kline Beecham lead to the development of Sudafed.  Andrew took a buy out and ultimately used that money to open Rivertowne Brewing.

Originally a series of three contract brews coming from Full Pint Brewing, the Rivertowne brewing brand opened their production brewery in 2012 and they now produce six different beers, all in 12oz cans.
So you may ask why I chose the beer I did today…to which I’d say why not?  Our beer choice today was Hala Kahiki Pineapple Pale Ale and yes I chose it simply because I knew Rob and I would have fun with it.  Don’t get too lost on that aspect, since this is actually a very good beer.  While I know the flavor of Pineapple in a beer is not for everyone, you’d be surprised how well balanced and drinkable this beer is….and in cans and coming in at 4.8% ABV it’s perfect for the beach, camping, hiking or even golfing.

Be sure to check out Rivertowne Hala Kahiki as well as their other beers: Babbling Blonde, Maxwell’s Scottish Ale, Grateful White, RT Lager & Old Wylie’s IPA…and see for yourself.

Thank you to Rob & Kyle for yet another

fun Friday.
