A Note on This Beer
Hop Hero: Huell Melon, Citra, and Mosaic Hops team up with a Kviek yeast! Flavor Force: Tropical flavors of orange, guava, and grapefruit delight in this easy-going Pale Ale. Defiantly Drinkable: Wrapped in a crushable ABV, this easy-breezy brew is meant for all-afternoon sipping.
Remember mullets? For folks who just couldn’t pick between long or short hair, mullets were the non-committal alternative. And for some baffling reason, they were the go-to style of 80s and early 90s action heroes.
Heroes like Zap Rowsdower. The Canadian B-filmster looked like my dad on a lazy Sunday, but his mullet-coiffed head told me he was a vengeance-getting force to be reckoned with! And man, could that guy crush a beer — or several.
That’s why Beaver Brewing crafted today’s insanely quenching, ultra-crushable Pale Ale in Zap’s honor. Head brewer Dan may not rock a mullet (or he might — I haven’t seen him in person lately), but he’s a craft action hero with his flavor-packed brews and dedication to layering complexity in even the most drinkable styles. He even wrote a book on nano-brewing!
And, just like a Zap Rowsdower flick, Dan’s beer has built up quite the cult following. In fact, local fans snatch up cans so fast that Beaver Brewing rarely ventures outside of PA.
Now’s the time to load up and get ready for an action-packed afternoon of tropical Pale Ale-crushing! Mullet advised, but not required.
