Red Yeti taps its first beer

The popular new Jeffersonville brew pub Red Yeti, 256 Spring St. near the Big Four pedestrian bridge, has been making a name for itself and developing a following for its tasty food, but now its brew works are up and running, and the first craft beer, dubbed Sterling Pale Ale, for the Sterling hops used, is on tap.

Owners Paul and Brandi Ronau opened their restaurant in May, with plenty of other makers’  beers on tap. But the goal from the beginning was to brew their own beer.

Red Yeti’s first effort is described as “a cross between an English mild ale and an English bitter, lightly carbonated and smooth in the more traditional pale ale vein, with a dry finish that yields only a small amount of bitterness and just a hint of grapefruit.”

The next batches to be ready will be Rose Island Red, a honey porter, and his signature IPA, HopIPAtamus.
