Brewmaster and Double Mountain owner Matt Swihart reflects about the beer making process with Top Chef Finalist Doug Adams, “I’m excited about our beer. Doug was an absolute delight to work with. We bonded over beer, our mutual love of banjos, and a frightening appreciation for 70’s beards.” This collaboration was a “dream come true” Adams stated on his Facebook page. Their comradery shines through with a humorous beer label, naming of the beer, and quality of beer.Yacht Rock India Red Ale 6% ABV, 50 BU
Description: For Chef’s Week, we paired up with Chef Doug Adams to create something special. We wanted to brew something that would be perfect to pair with a menagerie of menus and keep things sailing easy. Hence, we bring you Yacht Rock. Blood orange in color, this India Red is clean and refreshing for the palate, with pine and citrus to accompany the bread and biscuit on the back end. This is the beer you want to invite to the dinner party. It’s complimentary, polite, provides witty anecdotes, and will even help with the dishes.
