This weekend we’ll be sampling four “Elf Beers” from the Ridgeway Brewery for 75 cents each or buy a try of all four for just $2.50.  Located in South Stoke, England. Ridgeway was founded by Peter Scholey who formerly worked at the Brakspear Brewery in Henley-on-Thames and is named after the oldest road in the British Isles and Europe that is now only passable by foot.  This ancient passageway stretches nearly 100 miles across southwest England passing several historical landmarks such as Stonehenge.
Bad Elf A hoppy winter ale brewed with generous amounts of English malt and English Cascade hops.  This nice golden ale drinks like an English IPA with a sweet caramel malt base and a subtle hop bitterness.  6% abv. Food Pairing: Cheese (Asiago, Colby, Parmesan, Bleu, Sharp Cheddar), Meat, Fish, Spicy Cuisine
Very Bad Elf A full-bodied English Pale Ale with flavors of sweet roasted nuts and caramel.  A rare variety of Fuggle hops give this ale a nice fruity and citric hop flavor.  7.5% abv.  Food Pairing: Cuisine (Indian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern), Cheese (Monterey, Pepper Jack, Sharp Cheddar, Bleu), Meat, Fish
Criminally Bad Elf An English Barleywine with subtle flavors of dark fruits, banana, and caramel.  The finish is sweet and slightly hoppy with a warming alcohol sensation at the end.  10.5% abv. Food Pairing: Cheese (Bleu, Sharp Cheddar, Gorgonzola), Serve with sweet desserts
Insanely Bad Elf A thick full-bodied red ale that has a huge dark fruit flavor which helps to support the warming alcohol feel.  An interesting holiday brew with characteristics similar to a port or brandy.  12% abv. Food Pairing: Cheese (Camembert, Fontina, Edam, Feta), Meat (Pork, Grilled, Salmon)
