Tap Handle #270: North Coast - Pranqster Pale Ale

I had my eye on this one ever since I visited and saw all the cool taps they have made for various breweries. It's really a great tap - I love how the inside is "hollowed out" and you can look through the Q.

North Coast Brewing was founded in 1988 as a local brewpub in the historic town of Fort Bragg, on California’s Mendocino Coast, by brewmaster and president Mark Ruedrich. Throughout the years the brewery developed a strong reputation for quality, winning more than 70 awards in national and international competitions. In 1994, North Coast acquired the rights to Acme Beer, a brand with a heritage dating back to the San Francisco of the 1860s. North Coast currently brews 19 varieties and is the 42nd largest craft brewery in America, with distribution in 47 states, as well as Europe and the Pacific Rim.

Pranqster is a Belgian style pale ale using a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that results in a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish. Recommended food pairings are beef tenderloin marsala, tomatoes stuffed with shrimp, melon, and coconut flan. Weighted average on is 3.48 out of 5.
