G2 Brewery : Orion ABV 3.8% "chestnut coloured classic"
G2 Brewing was founded in 2014 with one goal in mind – to craft outstanding beers. The key ingredients in beer are barley, hops, yeast and water. However there is one key ingredient that allows all of these to flourish - The Sun, a G2 class star! At G2 they take creative inspiration from our sun and the stars and from them comes Orion, a chestnut coloured classic, infused with time-honored hops, an amalgamation of malts, creating a parallax of full, mouthwatering flavors, which subtly introduce fresh blasts of mint, rustic malty earthy tones and sun quenched floral and lavender scents.
