An American Red Ale influenced by multiple beer styles. Intense citrus and stone fruits dominate the nose (or beak if we're staying with the duck theme), yet the bitterness from the hops is balanced by Belgian and American crystal malts. It smells like an IPA exploding with fancy American hops but has a smooth, malty-but-not-too-malty finish.
Irish Red Ales originated in Ireland and are known for their drinkability. They are generally clean and malty with an initial sweetness and a roasted dryness in the finish. Some examples may have a light buttery character and a low hop profile. Typically this ale is amber to deep reddish copper in color and clear. Most examples are 4% to 6% alcohol by volume (abv).

Radiant Pig Craft Beers began as a pipe dream for a couple of homebrewers in a small Manhattan apartment. In February 2013, we brewed our first commercial batch of our flagship beer, Junior. We make hoppy ales inspired by the city we love, New York City.
