Here are the 6 must-have beers at Chimera which is why we try our best to keep them in stock for you year round!
Extra Strong Bitter (ESB) brewed with Myrtle leaves-A traditional English style pale ale with a great emphasis on balance between European malts, including spelt, an ancient grain, and Noble hops. Copper in color with caramel sweetness, medium bitterness, and herbal notes from the myrtle. The first beer ever brewed at Chimera named for the indigenous plant used in the brewing process which is common in the lands that once comprised the Roman Empire.
American Pale Ale-An adaptation of the English pale ale style using American ingredients (malt, hops, and yeast). Aggressively hopped for both bitterness and aroma. Golden in color with light malt flavor. Our flagship hoppy ale, this name is a nod to the gun-slinging history of the Wild West.
Irish Red Ale-An Irish slant on the English style "Pub Ale" characterized by it's reddish hue. Created with English malts and hops, with a little roasted barley for color. Toffee-like maltiness with very little hop presence. An easily quaffed pint, this beer was named for Cu Chulainn, a fierce Irish mythological hero. His name translates to English as "Culann's Hound".
Extra Strong Bitter (ESB)-Similar to our Roman Empire, this is a traditional English style pale ale that should exhibit great balance between the European malts and Noble hops. Copper in color with caramel sweetness and low to medium bitterness. The inspiration for this beer was the man himself, Didier Drogba. Though he is gone from Chelsea, he will forever be legend.
Belgian Witbier with coriander seeds-Based on a 400 year old Belgian style comprised of at least 50% unmalted wheat, barley, and Noble hops. Cloudy straw in color with low bitterness. Fruity and dry with a delicate black pepper-like presence. Bianca is the Italian word for white, a reference to the very light color of this beer.
All Green Mink
New England IPA-A relatively new style placing greater emphasis on aroma hopping instead of bitterness. English malt and yeast combined with American hops. Crisp, clean, and dry with slight bitterness. Most of the flavor is driven by copious post-boil hop additions. Blurring the lines of what an IPA can be, we went with this name because all green mink is luxurious, or is it? We'll let you decide.
