Redhook ESB is brewed by the Redhook Brewery - Woodinville, WA       

Redhook ESB is brewed in the style of a traditional British ESB (Extra Special Bitter). Redhook has been making ESB continuously since 1987, and it’s now the benchmark for the Amber beer category. Despite having “bitter” in its name, Redhook ESB is really not that bitter at all. This brew is all about the balance of caramel malt sweetness completed by spicy, citrusy hops.

Style: Amber
ABV: 5.8%
IBUs: 28.0
Origial Gravity: 13.75 degrees plato

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: This is a pretty beer: light, clear copper with a big, fluffy white head and plenty of lacing.

Aroma: Smells like an English bitter, alright. Hints of hoppiness (not a lot) and a decent amount of clean breadiness.

Taste: This beer tastes nice at the end of the day. The front end is a little malty, the back end is bitter, and a good mix of both lingers for a few minutes.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was great when the head was present, the fluffyness lent an almost a thin, cream-like feel. After the head receded the feel is quite a bit thinner; boring, but not bad.

Overall: This ale is a nice brew that I would drink again. Great for in between foods or brews as a palate cleanser and as a nice session beer at the end of a nice shift or at a bbq.


Redhook Brewery
Redhook was born out of the energy and spirit of the early 80’s in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one of America’s first “craft” breweries. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to the current breweries in Woodinville, Wash. and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. While Redhook has “grown up” over the past 30 years, one thing has never changed – it’s still brewing great beers like ESB, Long Hammer IPA, Copperhook, and seasonal brews. Most importantly, Redhook makes sure it has fun doing it. Redhook's beers are available in both draught and bottles and are distributed nationally through a network of wholesale distributors.
