It looks like spring beers are beginning to roll in sooner than later. One of the first to hit the liquor stores, is brought to you by the great Sierra Nevada brewery. This year for their Beer Camp series, they are featuring a spring seasonal titled, “Hoppy Lager”.
The brew, which tastes just like its title, is spot on delicious. Sitting at a whopping 7% ABV, it is virtually hidden with taste. Clean, crisp, hoppy, all with an earthy lager taste – Sierra Nevada has made one fine beer with their Hoppy Lager. For under $10 a six pack, this will be a spring favorite.
Wow. . . so after recently discovering our fellow midwest brewery, Saugatuck Brewery, out of MI., it is apparent that these guys know what they’re doing. A few weeks back we featured their unique Neapolitan Milk Stout and now we’re featuring they’re silky smooth Bonfire Brown Ale.
The Bonfire Brown ale would be prime sipping on next to a fire chillin’. The brew pours with little to no head, and features a dark brown / reddish color to it. This brown ale first tastes of roasted nuts and maybe toffee, with a light smokey malt finish. Absolutely this beer is very well balanced.
