Iron Horse Brewery in Ellensburg, WA

Light Rail Ale

We took some liberties with our interpretation of this Cream Ale, replacing the typically-used Noble hop with Domestic hops noted for their citrus flavors. The esters in the yeast add to a fruity middle. This gives us a crisp, clean-finishing ale that can serve as a ‘gateway beer’ of sorts… let’s just say we hope to entice domestic drinkers into more, ah, INTERESTING waters. 5% ABV.

    Light Rail Ale needs to be in a bottle! I live in Spokane and would buy this all the time if you offered it in a bottle.

    This beer rocks!! It definitely needs to be available in a bottle on a regular basis in Whatcom County. Would say more but I got to grab as many growlers as I can to go fill up with this deliciousness before its gone. Cheers!

    Just finished a growler of the Light Rail Ale. Incredible. Awesome finish. Wonderful malty fade. You guys have a real winner with this one. A brewing purist’s beer for sure. Thanks.

    I love Light Rail and wish I could find it in Spokane. I’ve had it a couple of times at Area 51 in The Onion.
    Please consider bottling it or possibly making it available in growlers from Spokane retail outlets!
