Strength: 3.8% ABV
Brewed: Ellon, Scotland
Tired of a market dominated by industrially brewed Lagers and Ales, the team behind BrewDog set up the world’s first crowd-funded brewery in 2007. Now operating from a site in Ellon, just north of Aberdeen, a community of over 14,500 investors owns the business, with shares in the brewery still available. And what’s more, the brewery that’s made for the people, by the people is still constantly striving to encourage passion for Craft Beer.
Brewed using West-Coast hops, BrewDog’s Dead Pony Club Pale Ale boasts a translucent orange colour with a quickly disappearing off-white head, before offering a taste of strong hops and plenty of tropical fruits, including notes of mango, passion fruit and even some yuzu. Completed by a dry finish, the result is very impressive for a low ABV Beer with its pleasant taste.
Dead Pony Club Pale Ale can be purchased from BrewDog.com, as well as information on how to become an investor.
