Pearl Street Brewery – Pearl Street Pale Ale

While Pearl Street Brewery has been around since 1999, #beerclub has yet to sample their brews. This is about to change, as we add yet another Wisconsin brewery to our roster.

I’m trying out a new plugin on the blog to gather data from the online brewery database, so I’ll let the plugin give you more details about the brewery and the beer. Join us next Monday at 8:00 PM at @hashtagbeerclub and #beerclub as we drink Pearl Street Pale Ale.

Established: 1999
1401 Saint Andrew Street La Crosse, Wisconsin 54603 United States
Our brewery started with a dream and a 1984 Eagle Wagon and trailer packed with brewery equipment driven here from Colorado by an ambitious young brewer and his Dad. After a long and tumultuous journey involving disaster and triumph; joy and heartache ~ they began to build. Following fourteen months of design, building and construction they finally fired up the brew kettle for the first time in December of 1999. Although the brewery was tiny and tucked in a basement on Pearl Street, the celebration and Grand Opening was enough to attract throngs of flavor starved people and get Mayor Medinger to tap the inaugural keg. We have come a long way since. Today we brew, bottle and keg our beers from our new home in the historic La Crosse Footwear building with our expanded 30 barrel brewery. The new brewery has over six times the brewing capacity of the old Pearl Street Brewhouse. And while we spent the first 8 years slinging brews out to nearby pubs and restaurants in draught kegs only, in July of 2007, we unveiled bottled beer in six packs and cases.
American-Style Pale Ale
A well-defined hop flavor and aroma distinguish this classic beer. American-Style Pale Ales are amongst this country’s most distinctive brews. Few beer drinkers can pass up the flowery, slightly dry yet full-bodied flavor of this popular beer. Four separate additions of British hop varieties mingle in the brew kettle to create it’s intriguing and assertive hoppiness, and the age-old “dry-hopping” method using our own locally grown hops during fermentation tops Pearl Street Pale Ale off with spicy and floral hop aromatics. Silver Medal Winner at the World Beer Championship, 2003. Available on draught year ‘round.
