Alpha Six

The yeast makes the beer. No more is this so than with EVO’s Alpha Six. The yeast we use hails from the Ardennes region of Belgium and is known for creating classic Belgian ales with complex features and a smooth, balanced finish. And the alpha rating of Ardennes yeast? You guessed it, six. That little yeast alpha is the reason you’re holding our beer in your hand- a sessionable Belgian-style ale that goes down easy

The resulting beer was conditioned on more than 25 pounds of coffee lending a rich, espresso-like aroma.
