Beer Description

When the weather warms up the party is always on the south side. After years of experiencing summer blonde ales that were light and “drinkable” but boring, Confluence head brewer John Martin set out to create a distinctive summer beer that is light, refreshing and flavorful. John started with Belgian two-row pilsner malt, cara-blonde and a little wheat malt and American Ale yeast. The not-so-secret ingredient is an intentionally light touch of Citra hops, just enough to inject light bittering flavor via whirlpool and dry-hopping but not so much as to inhibit drinkability. Named in honor of Confluence Brewing’s location on the south side of Des Moines, South Side Citra has become a popular accompaniment for whatever summer activities our friends have in mind.
