Taste Notes

http://www.benfranklin300.org/etc_article_ale.htm Celebrate the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth on January 17, 2006 by hoisting a specially brewed pint of Poor Richard’s Ale at a brewery near you. On September 2005, at the Great American Beer Festival, a panel of experts selected Tony Simmons’ recipe for Poor Richard’s Ale. Formulated to resemble a quaff that Franklin himself might have enjoyed and brewed in small batches by independent breweries nationwide, Poor Richard’s Ale offers the perfect beverage for toasting a man some call “The First American.” Consumers can find locations serving the pleasantly “malty, corny, and slightly nutty” ale by going to www.poorrichardsale.com. And home-brewers can have a go a brewing a batch themselves by using Tony’s recipe.
