Kingsley Local Brewing’s Mallet Session IPA

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | April 22, 2023

While we love a heavy-hitting beer, the return of sunny days and higher temperatures call for something with a little less impact. Enter: Kingsley Local Brewing’s Mallet Session IPA. Clocking in at just 4 percent ABV, this easy-drinking ale is the lightest of the pub’s hammer-themed suds. It still packs a flavor punch, though, as the brew features a wide assortment of grains and citrusy Simcoe and Mosaic hops (all of which are locally sourced). The result is a gorgeously balanced ale with a dominant grapefruit and resin aroma, offset by notes of fresh bread and caramel. Enjoy it with a spicy curry, or pick up the in-house “pepper-phone-i” for direct access to Papano’s Pizza! Try a pint for $8 at Kingsley Local Brewing (121 S. Brownson Ave., Kingsley) or take home a four-pack for $14. For updates and more information, find them on Facebook and Instagram @kingsleylocalbrewing. (Kingsley Local Brewing is the new sister company of Workshop Brewing in Traverse City.)
