Thursday Tap: Ridgeway Bad Elf

This week’s Thursday Tap is Ridgeway’s Bad Elf, a 6% IPA brewed with UK-grown Cascade hops. Olde England meets the New World in this strong, warming golden ale. A generous amount of famous English malt is masterfully balanced with an astounding 45 ounces of fresh hops – including English Cascade – per barrel. Bad Elf is brewed by Peter Scholey, master brewer for the late and much-lamented Brakspear Brewery of Henley-on-Thames, England. Peter has bought up the entire crop from the single row of Cascades grown in the U.K.

This traditional firkin-style cask is sure to bring a smile to many a beer drinker’s face, so be sure and enjoy the weekly offering. Jimmy taps at 5 p.m. and this beer is available while supply lasts!
