A Note on This Beer
Naming a beer after someone is the highest honor a craft brewer can bestow. Especially when the brewers made that beer a Wild Ale with local wildflower honey, White Fir needles, and aged it for 12 months in fresh, Oregon wine barrels!
For Paul Arney — founder and head brewer of Oregon’s award-winning The Ale Apothecary — the special honoree was obvious: his dad, Ralph Arney.
You don’t have to be an acclaimed brewer, or craft a small-batch, spontaneously fermented sipper to show your loved ones some gratitude. Simply scoop up a bottle from our 20-case stash and share it with that special someone in your life!
Got a buddy who’s always been there for you? Pop the cork on the 7.23% ABV specialty, and toast to friendship over indulgent aromas of evergreen and pine.
Thinkin’ it’s about time you show that lucky lady in your life how much she really means to you? Pour a taste of Ralph (2020) and let the jammy fruit and earthy, clover honey notes do all the talking.
Or maybe, like Paul, you just really want to show your folks how much you appreciate all of their support through the years. Why not surprise them with a little one-on-one tasting time?
Once they get a sip of the dedication and patience that went into making this Wild Ale brim with hints of lemony citrus, fresh spruce, and wild funk, they’ll know how much you really care.
