For many decades, Norfolk & Western trains “creeped” along the steep grade between Abingdon and North Carolina, allowing its passengers the time to take in the beautiful scenery. Today, the railbed has been converted into a trail along which bikers, runners and hikers enjoy views of open farmland, cool laurel forests and stately trestles that cross mountain streams. Resembling the orange and red hues of the Creeper Trail on a warm fall day, this amber ale is focused on sweet caramel malt flavors layered on a solid Munich and Victory malt backbone. These smooth malt flavors are intertwined like Virginia Creeper vines with a strong dose of bittering Magnum and citrusy aroma and flavor hops.
