Michelob's dry-hopped blonde.


Michelob Brewing Co. brewmaster Kristi Zantop says Beach Bum Blonde Ale draws its deep golden color from a selection of pale and caramel barley malt, and its hop character from imported Alsace and Hallertau hops, and Cascade and Willamette hops from the Pacific Northwest.

Ms. Zantop reports that the brewmasters use a dry-hopping technique, adding hops not only to the brewkettle, but also to the aging tank to build the beer's hoppy aroma.

"Beach Bum Blonde Ale is more than a seasonal beer--it has become an annual signal at the brewery that summer is finally here," said Kristi. "Beach Bum's golden color, malty sweetness and slightly spicy hop aromas are the perfect complement to a summertime afternoon." Beach Bum Blonde Ale is part of Michelob Brewing Co.'s series of seasonal offerings. The brand will be sold from May through September. Beach Bum contains 5.4 percent alcohol by volume (ABV).
