Devil’s 9 Ball – Pale Ale

You’re going to love this deliciously hoppy little devil.  Packed with an abundance of citrusy American Hops, this dry-hopped amber beauty will keep you coming back until you’re satisfied.  Rumor has it, it’s a favorite of “the guy under the brewery floor”.

Our Devil’s 9Ball is dry-hopped in the fermenters.  This addition of pounds (Not Ounces!) of hops causes this beer to appear cloudy, but, we do not want to filter out all those great flavors and B vitamins just to improve the clarity of the beer.  This is a perfect example of being beautiful on the inside!  [B Vitamins by the way are known to be natural hangover inhibitors.]

How did the Devil ever get his moniker on this little taste of heaven you may ask? It came from building our brewery in Oxford, PA.  Oxford is a small town with a history dating back to the mid 1700s; this means some of the buildings are pretty old, ours included! While we are not exactly sure how old our building is, we know we are not the first tenants of this building.  During the building out of the property, two things were (and still are) mysteries to all of us; what was down the ominously dark hole under the receiving platform and why did a 9 ball keep turning up in weird places? Each of us remember knocking the 9 ball down the mysterious hole at different times but somehow the ball kept turning up.  It seemed we had been playing a weird game of fetch with some unknown partner.

We are in no way glorifying the devil.  That 9 ball on the other hand; it has been to hell and back at least a half a dozen times and it is as shiny as the first day any of us found it rolling through the warehouse! Our Devils 9Ball has that same tenacity of flavor and an enduring taste that will keep you under its spell.
