Inspired by warm and welcoming German pubs, the Summit Ratskeller is where we test the bold, experimental beers born on our pilot system — our playground for trialing exciting new recipes. It’s also where we introduce beer drinkers to Summit’s traditional approach to the centuries-old art of brewing and guide them to where they can find our beers in the wider world — all part of our efforts to Support Your Local Pub™.
As for the new Ratskeller Reserve Collection, a 12-pack of 12-oz. bottles, it’ll feature four beers originally brewed on our pilot system, each brought back to life and bottled just this one time. Check ’em out:
- Summit Triple Rye – An Amber Ale featuring three types of rye from three different countries, combining sweet roasted malt flavors with citrus hops and spice.
- Summit Twenty-One – A collaborative IPA from Summit’s seven brewers, Twenty-One features seven different malts, seven different hops, and notes of citrus, pine and melon.
- Summit Get Smoked – A traditional export porter with smoked malts, spicy British hops, and flavors of dark fruit and bittersweet chocolate.
- Summit XPA One – A single malt, single hop Pale Ale with notes of breadcrust, sourdough, and tropical hop flavors from Sabro, Yakima Valley’s newest hop variety.
