Extra Special Bitter
Brewed in Collaboration with D & G Brewing. When Riverlands was beginning construction, we found out another brewery had beaten us to the punch in St Charles. That turned out to be a great thing as the fine people at D & G quickly became our friends.
Before either brewery opened its doors, we knew we needed to brew a beer together. Tackling a classic English style neither brewery had done before, we brewed an ESB with a slightly enhanced American hop profile alongside the English classics. We paired CTZ, Fuggle, East Kent Goldings, and Cascade hops for a combination of floral and citrus as well as spice and a hint of earthiness. We hope you enjoy our beer brewed in the spirit of friendship and collaboration. Cheers!
