India pale ale
Part of Ghost River’s special Brewers’ Series, the What’s Good IPA lives up to its name. It’s good. Damn good. A solid foundation of golden malt gives way to floral hops and citrus, and it does so without leaving a bitter aftertaste. This one’s ideal for pairing with spicy foods, so grab a growler from Ghost River’s dock and cook up some Thai.
American wheat beer
This beloved spring seasonal debuted in 2015, and it’s making a comeback this April. Ghost River enhanced the traditional American wheat beer with locally sourced honey and orange peel, creating a smooth, drinkable beer that offers hop-haters a spring alternative. It’s available on tap or in bottles, and unlike some spring beers that may disappear from taprooms by summer, this one will be around through August.
