Faction Brewing's The Penske File Pale Ale is the 2018 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal winner for Best International-Style Pale Ale! The GABF competition judges over 3800 beers in 102 style categories, submitted by more than 800 breweries across the US. A medal from the GABF is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the US, and is recognized worldwide as a symbol of brewing excellence.
Faction's The Penske File Pale Ale is hopped with Mosaic and Equinox hops, resulting in notes of berries, stone fruit, melon, lime, and tropical papaya. It has a light, crisp body with a slight bitterness that pairs well with seafood, tacos, and simple grilled dishes.
Faction Brewing is a product of the marriage (literally) of employees of two local Alameda breweries. They offer a wide variety of pales, IPAs, Belgians, porters and stouts, as well as the occasional barrel-aged beer.Read more
