Friday afternoon Contrast
Garage-style doors opened, April spring let in, and Artifice Pale V2 served on draught.
It's a Friday afternoon in the taproom at...
5 April 2019.
▶ Artifice Pale V2
This is not a hazy or juicy-fruit pale ale but a bright and crisp golden one, with a citrusy aroma and dry finish, at an alcohol level of 5.6% (by volume). I would surmise that an apparent 11% alcohol decrease from the recipe for version 1 decreased the sweetness but increased the perkiness in this, version 2. And increased —gulp— the drinkability.
A two-vessel seven-barrel brewhouse can be seen in the background. Beers are served from finishing tanks located in a cold room directly behind the bar (to the left in the photo). The brewery is new: it opened to the public in December 2018, owned and operated by Chase Medlin, the past head brewer at Twains Brewpub and Billiards in nearby Decatur, Georgia.
