A homage to the classics, Pirate Life’s Red Ale pours a dark rich red, throwing big pine and citrus hop characters from the can. Dropping bombs from both the hop and malt worlds, the trifecta of Centennial, Mosaic and Enigma shine through with a resinous bitterness to back up the caramel and rye malts. Expect the finish to linger sweet with hops, cocoa and toffee.
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 Brewhouse was ordered from Stainless Systems in Escondido, California in mid 2014. Coincidentally, one of their brewers, Jack, lived just nearby for 4 years back in his USA brewing days. Their other brewer Red saw their tanks at Eagle Bay brewing in WA and was pretty impressed. The brewhouse arrived just 3 days after they arrived in Adelaide so they really hit the ground running, converting a large shed into a fully functioning brewhouse in less than 3 months.
