1865James River Brewery
Scottsville, VA
Smoked
5.5% ABV25 IBU
In March 1865, Union forces under Major General Phillip H. Sheridan left Charlottesville with orders to destroy the James River Canal and Virginia Central Railroad. On March 6th, Federal troops burned a Scottsville cloth mill, flour mill, candle factory, machine shop and tobacco warehouse as well as captured several ferry boats loaded with Confederate munitions. In commemoration of those dark days, this brown ale is brewed with a healthy portion of rauch-malt (smoked malt), paired with a low hop bitterness and aroma that lets the flavor of the smokey malt shine through.
