Dock Street ales are now "all English."

Dock Street Brewing Co. continues its quest for the "perfect English ales" by importing all ingredients from Great Britain, the Philadelphia brewer reported.

According to a Dock Street spokesperson, British 2-row pale ale malt and crystal malt produce a "smoother, rounder brew because of the English malting process." Under British guidelines, the barley is grown plumper and then kilned at a higher temperature. The process allows for "darker colors and richer flavors to be extracted during the brewing process," the brewer stated.

English ale hops, namely Kent Goldings and Kent Fuggles, are also employed to create a brew high in aromatics with an almost herbal quality.

As of March 16, Dock Street unveiled its India Pale, its hoppiest offering; Burton Ale, a brew akin to the English bitter; and a Pale Ale, a dry, copper-colored ale.
