Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch ESB

Catawba Brewing is now pouring a Small Batch ESB (5.1 percent ABV). This traditional English-style pub ale is brewed with Maris Otter and Crystal malts and hopped with Simcoe and Fuggle. Copper in color, it has flavor notes of sweet caramel and bread crust, balanced by earthy, floral hop bitterness.

Small Batch ESB is Passport Beer #17 in Catawba’s 2018 Small Batch rewards program. Brewed in their Asheville South Slope brewhouse, the beer is available exclusively in Catawba’s four tasting rooms.
