A Note on This Beer
- “If someone handed me a pint of it, I could immediately recognize it as Mac & Jack, and I wouldn't say that about most beers. Absolutely delicious.” @ckornmann
- “My only problem with this beer is that it isn't available outside of the Seattle area.” @JGreen.
- “Man, this is so prolific and ubiquitous in Washington State, it’s easy to forget that this is not a major brand across the country.” @Oh_Dark_Star
Until this year, Washington craft fans had accepted the fact that one of our most beloved draft staples — African Amber from Mac & Jack’s Brewing — would always be draft-only, never to be taken home in cans.
Then the pandemic hit, and the brewers unleashed the dry-hopped Amber beast into cans for Washington and Oregon!
This brew positively roars with rich complexity from the brewers’ special malt blend. Its floral and pine aromas lead to toasted nut and brown sugar notes in a full, unfiltered body, finishing surprisingly crisp and refreshing.
African Amber is something that’s brought a lot of us Pacific Northwest beer lovers joy over this tumultuous year. So now, we’d like to share these limited release African Amber cans with our fellow craft fans on Tavour. Cheers!
In addition to being a draft-only favorite since the 1990s, African Amber is known as “The Northwest's original, unfiltered and dry hopped Amber Ale.”
