Oregon- American Amber / Red Ale- This Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It's brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts and hopped with Mt. Hood and Cascade hops. Awarded a ""World's Best"" medal at the 2013 World Beer Awards.
A self-described mix of beer geeks, boardheads, mountain bikers, surfers, Ultimate fanatics and powder hounds: that’s the staff at Full Sail Brewing Co. of Hood River, Oregon.
Irene Firmat founded the brewery in an abandoned cannery building in 1987, transforming the site with state-of-the-art brewing equipment meant to produce top-quality brews right from the start. Full Sail is now an independent, employee-owned company.
Full Sail Amber Ale quickly became the brewery’s best-selling beer, winning a gold medal at the 1989 Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The brewery’s core beers include their original Amber, plus Pale Ale and IPA. Seasonal brews include the LTD series, the popular Wassail winter beer, many special-release beers and the very popular Session Lager series.
Full Sail Session Premium Lager is a classic all-malt pre-Prohibition style lager, reminiscent of what American lagers used to taste like. It’s all about drinkability, but never at the expense of character. Flavorful and refreshing with an import-style taste, this beer has won too many awards to list, including a gold medal at the 2008 GABF.
Newer to the series is Session Black Lager, a six-time gold medal winner, including the 2009 GABF. While most beers this dark are heavy-duty, Session Black, with just a hint of roasty, chocolate character, maintains the drinkability of all the beers in the Session series.
