- Join the fight against ALS and brew for a cause! Formulated specifically around new hop HBC-438, the Luckiest Man, coined from Lou Gehrig's famous speech, turns ale brewed with a groundbreaking experimental hop varietal into groundbreaking research to find a cure for ALS. Craft a batch of hope with this brilliant golden ale. Its clean malt base sets the stage for novel hop flavors of citrus, stone fruit and herbals.
Better than the eccentric hop character of this refreshing session pale ale is the $10.50 from each kit that goes to benefit research that one day, we hope, will find a permanent cure for Lou Gehrig’s disease. Raise your pint high, The Luckiest Man may be the most cheer-worthy brew we’ve ever released.

- 4.4 / 5.016 ReviewsIt's in the fermenterMy first batch is now in secondary, just tasted and so far it's great. I brewed this after a fellow home brewer gave me a few bottles, will tap on Memorial Day weekend.April 23, 2016Perfect Service As Always!Very easy website and browsing. The goods came early as well. Thank you Northern Brewer!March 23, 2016Love it!I normally brew all grain, but I received the extract kit as a gift. Since I do partial volume boils followed by top-off water whenever I do brew an extract kit, and since the first hop addition isn't until the 30 minute mark, I decided to do a 30 minute boil and save time and propane. It turned out fantastic! Great tropical fruit flavors and aroma, along with a smooth bitterness made this beer a hit. None of my beer geek friends could tell that it was an extract kit.February 13, 2017Lukiest manEasy brew dark color hoppy hoppy hoppy looking forward to a pint.December 17, 2015Delicious!Gave this one a try and so hoppy I did! Nice aroma makes you wonder if it's an IPA but the flavor is all ale and a really good ale at that. Nice balance, smooth and a real crowd pleaser. My neighbors prefer this one over anything they get at the store.July 13, 2016Luckiest man is a winnerJust drank my first bottle from the extract kit. Overall very happy. Color came out a little bit darker than shown on the website. I fermented in primary for 4 weeks using US-05, with dry hopping during the last week. Great hop aroma. Lots of citrus/grapefruit flavor. Reminds me of a lower alcohol version of Dead Ringer (another favorite of mine). This will make a great sit out on the deck after mowing the yard refreshment.April 10, 2016huge hit at a NYE partyI was asked to brew a keg for a NYE party and I selected this. It got rave reviews. I hid the keg so that all that could be seen was the tap and people were asking where they could buy it. For me, it was very good, but the hop variety gave a hint of pine (maybe that's the stone fruit or herbals in the description). It was enough of an abnormal taste that I had to have several drinks before I concluded that indeed it was fantastic. Yet another hit by NB, but not the normal pale ale.January 4, 2016Great Kit and BeerAs always, the kit came in quick and was well packaged. The beer was easy to brew. It has a great aroma and flavor. Would recommend to anyone looking for a session type pale. Will brew this one again!!June 16, 2016Can't go wrong!Pulled the last pint as we speak. It's a rather bitter sweet moment... No pun intended. All around just an awesome pale ale! Hats off to the new hop variety as well. Great aroma and body. A slightly Malty sweetness on the front end followed by a citrus backbend with notes of grapefruit that lingers. It's not overly bitter. I'd venter to say the bitterness of this brew is very forgiving, and easy for any one to drink to say the least. Good job on this one guys!December 22, 2015InterestingVery nice floral aroma, light to medium body, a bit thin tasting, but pleasant pale style. I can see where some might find this hop "catty " if used poorly, but this one is good. Four stars because five should be "excellent". No complaints, and happy to support the cause as well as new hop varieties.November 19, 2015
