Steel Rail Ale
Brewery Berkshire Brewing Company
Type of Beer Extra Pale Ale
ABV 5.3%

BBC has been cooking up beers in Western Massachusetts for a quarter century at this point. So it's fair to say that they've pushed a lot of Steel Rails through their kettles.

If you like Czech-style pilsners, give the BBC Busker a sip. It's crisp, refreshing, and it makes for a good lawnmower beer.
