Tap Handle #116: Keegan Ales - Old Capital

This is not one of my top taps, but I still really like it. The only difference between varieties is in the label.

Keegan Ales was founded in 2003 in Kingston, New York by Tommy Keegan. One Father's Day Tommy bought his father a home brewing kit. Intrigued at the possibilities, he attended the University of California - Davis for their Master Brewers program. He bought the defunct Woodstock Brewery and was soon up and running. Keegan Ales brews three main beers and production is small.

Old Capital is a golden/blond ale named for the fact that Kingston was once the capital of New York before the British burned it down. It is more complex and robust than a lager and has a subtle, sweet cereal note. Weighted average on is 2.82 out of 5.
