long root ale

Patagonia Provisions teamed up with Hopworks Urban Brewery to create Long Root Ale®, a great tasting beer that’s the first to be made with Kernza®, a perennial grain grown using regenerative agriculture practices. Patagonia Provisions believes the future of farming lies in regenerative organic agriculture which restores soil biodiversity, sequesters carbon, and efficiently grows crops without chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Long Root Ale, a delicious pale ale, is brewed with organic two-row barley, organic yeast, organic Chinook, Mosaic and Crystal hops, and Kernza. Kernza’s long root system and perennial growth allows it to thrive without tilling, preserving precious top soil. It also uses less water than conventional wheat, removes more carbon from the atmosphere and makes one damn good beer.
