From Breweries in PA: The PA Pride beer series, which started in 2020 in part because of the pandemic, but also to showcase the robust Pennsylvania agriculture landscape, continues with the ninth beer in the series scheduled to release to the public Friday June 30th. This exceptional brew, made using local 2-row barley and oats, serves as a testament to Pennsylvania’s vibrant craft brewing industry and showcases a range of products that can be cultivated within the state.

Breweries from across Pennsylvania have yet again teamed to produce the ninth installment of the series which is named for the love and pride we all share for the Keystone state. The latest version in the beer series is a 5.1% English style Pub Ale made with locally produced UK-style Pale Ale malt and fermented with an English Ale yeast. All canned and draft options of this beer will be served with the use of Nitrogen to create a distinct mouthfeel, enhanced aroma, and characteristic cascading effect for the authentic pub experience.
“PA Pride Nitro Pub Ale” features a carefully selected blend of malts sourced from Pennsylvania’s own, Deer Creek Malthouse, delivering a rich and robust flavor profile. Complementing the malt is an exquisite selection of East Kent Golding hops. A tight white foam tops the tawny nitro pour while the aroma brings a potpourri of candied stone fruit. Toasted and warming malt flavors fill out the mouthfeel balanced by a subtle herb and spice bitterness that cleanses the palate for the next sip. These elements combine to create a beer that showcases the depth and quality of Pennsylvania agriculture.
Starting Friday, June 30th, “PA Pride Nitro Pub Ale” will be available at select breweries across Pennsylvania. Craft beer enthusiasts and supporters of local agriculture are encouraged to experience the unique flavors and narrative that this beer embodies. You can find a full map of where it will be available in both cans and on draft here.
“The original PA Pride started as a way to support small craft breweries with a packaged product that would allow them to share with their customers during the pandemic when taprooms were closed. Breweries without the capabilities of canning beer could now have a to-go option in their taproom coolers without the massive investment of a canning operation. It has since grown into so much more by connecting the many different breweries that make up this amazing state while showcasing the true power of Pennsylvania agriculture” says Chadd Balbi, co-founder of Breweries In PA, one of the companies behind the project.
