The brief Pirate Life gave themselves for their flagship beer was that it should be able to be sent to any bar in San Diego and to stand proudly alongside the many great Pales produced in, and around, the west coast of the US. The schematic for a West Coast Pale Ale is bucket loads of big US hops, full malty backbone and a characterful yeast. That is what this Pale Ale is all about.
Adelaide deserves to be famous for more than churches and an iced coffee fetish. Sunshine, great food, better wine and famous festivals; it was the obvious choice for Pirate Life. Adelaide might have funny tasting water, but that doesn’t stop them from making a darn good brew.
DID YOU KNOW?
Pirate Life choose cans over bottle because:
1. Cans no longer have that metallic taste, thanks to internal coating. Think of it as a mini keg
2. Cans are more portable and durable
3. They take far less energy to recycle than bottles
4. They chill faster!
