Originating from the village of Grodås in Norway, Espe offers the unique profile of lychee, pear, and tropical fruit cup. The strain bolsters the sweet aromatics of modern IPAs, but is versatile enough for your flagship pale ale or seasonal brew. Espe is most expressive when fermented at 90°F+ (32°C+), but still reveals its character at lower ale-pitching temperatures.
