The idea for the first brew was to be able to simply unite all the brewers together to see how the concept worked.
A simple recipe was put together using ingredients that all brewers would be able to get their hands on. A low ABV pale ale made with cascade hops was the criteria. Parameters for colour, bittering and abv were set with the idea of comparisons of the same recipe across the globe. The differences between the brews were astounding and really did highlight the characteristic of each brewery and showed how no recipe can be truly duplicated. ‘Unite Pale’ was thus born and the idea for future events grew.
