As the kiddos start counting down the days left of Summer vacation and the parents are counting down to the first day of school, we are presented with the reality that winter is coming. Well, not yet, Minnesota, we still have plenty of Summer beers to drink!!
And Now, the Brews
|Able | Super Giant | Golden Ale|
|I was not sure what to think about another Minnesota Golden Ale, but this one wins. Light white head when you pour. Grain notes on the nose and the most refreshing crisp taste. They do throw some hop character into the mix with a slightly bitter finish. Overall perfect balance and one I would grab again.|
|6 pk Cans | 5.2% ABV | 18 IBUs|
|Bent Paddle | Roof Rack | Lager|
|This Vienna Style Lager is great for that bit of chill we get at night this time of year in August. It will be even better, though, once the leaves start to fly. Light herbal and citrus notes combine with the bready caramel malt flavors to balance this beer out wonderfully. Maltier than most lagers, but with this being a little bit meatier of a beer, it will bring us into fall perfectly.|
|6 pk Cans | 5.7% ABV | 27 IBUs|
