Thunder Canyon Deep Canyon Amber
American Ambers (known simply as Red Ales in some regions) were popularized in the hop-loving Northern California and the Pacific Northwest areas before spreading nationwide. Home brewers largely invented this particular beer style by creating American Pale Ales (APA) that are typically richer and sometimes darker than their APA cousins.
