The 4%-abv entry, which is billed as a sessionable Pale Ale, marks the fourth expression in Upper Hand’s year-round portfolio, joining UPA (Upper Peninsula Ale), Escanaba Black Beer and Upper Hand Lager. Upper Hand Brewery is a division of Michigan’s Bell’s Brewery Inc., the seventh-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.
