What’s the story?
Crafting a local beer to complement restaurant menus and brew pubs has taken on a life of its own since 2011.
Common to wine lists where pairings are established to showcase the flavors of a dish and its ingredients, the craft beer movement gives a nod to this collaboration in its own fashion through custom beers brewed for seasonal or complementary purposes.
Skipper Kress, bar manager at Red’s Icehouse had a “boat beer” in mind when he approached Sean Fleming and Ryan Coker at Revelry Brewing to develop a summer beer for both Tavern & Table and the two Red’s Ice House locations.

What’s the flavor?
A crisp, dry Pilsner-style lager. It is dry hopped with Citra hops. This India Pale Lager has an ABV of 5 percent. Coker and his team used lager yeast to keep the crispness factor high. This beer has a light body that quenches thirst and has a clean finish without any alcohol in overdrive.
Can be enjoyed on or off the boat.
