Devils Post Pale Ale

Approximately 100,000 years ago, a basaltic lava flow filled the middle fork of the San Joaquin River, just west of present-day Mammoth Mountain. The lava cooled slowly and evenly, producing 3- to 7-sided columns. Then, during the last ice age, glaciers scoured the columns into the formations we see today.

Originally brewed for the centennial celebration of Devils Postpile, we superheat volcanic rock to start the boiling process. The result is earthy, caramelized wort, giving this ale its unique flavor. We then generously hop with Centennial hops (of course!) to create this double pale ale.
