Wry American Red Rye Ale
History: This beer was first introduced to Angola tap room drinkers as a Roulette series back in early 2015 as Red Ryeding Hood. As a draft only specialty beer, many in our home market had never tried a beer like this and the results were nothing short of amazing. While most Roulette's are meant to be produced once, this American Red has been in constant distribution since March of 2015. Given it's popularity and appeal, we have renamed it Wry American and began offering it in 16 oz pint cans in August 2016.
