Goundie’s Old Monocacy Ale

July 16th, 2009 | , ,

Goundie’s Old Monocacy Ale, is in the style of British Old Ales, using Floor malted Maris Otter malt , fire roasted Barley and a special ingredient called Essentia Bina ( which is essentially homemade Molasses), boiling over a fire for hours before setting the pot on fire, this adds color and a peat like taste. Old Ale is a somewhat sweet, rich and full bodied Ale.

“Goundie’s Old Monocacy Ale,” adapted from historical recipes by award-winning amateur brewer Chris Bowen, was tapped July 16th at the Bethlehem Brew Works (corner of Main and Broad Streets). Sebastian himself was on hand to talk about the historic batch-ok, it was just Bowen dressed in historic garb to add another bit of authenticity.
