“We went through months of sampling different versions and finally agreed on the current version of Sky Ale … it has a wonderful aroma and the right amount of body.”
RESTAURANT REVIEW: New Sky Asian Cuisine in Kettering (July 2016)
Chabut said that after he sampled the restaurant’s dishes with Sky Asian’s founders, he decided to incorporate ginger in the beer “because I thought it would compliment the food well — and they agreed.
“I came back three times, with a slightly tweaked version of the beer each time — I really wanted the beer to be exactly what the owners/managers wanted. By the third visit, we had finally nailed it, and I must say, the result is pretty darn good!
“It’s an amber ale, brewed with real ginger root and honey malt. It’s light in body, smooth and easy to drink, but not lacking in flavor. It’s about 5.5% alcohol and 15 IBUs. Very approachable for the novice craft beer drinker, but also something that a craft connoisseur could appreciate.
“You won’t find it anywhere else but the restaurant — not even at Eudora.”
