Zulu Blonde is brewed by Zululand Brewery in Eshowe, South Africa. This brew quickly became one of my favorite light bodied beers and I was sad when I ran out of it. It’s not overly sweet and goes down smooth with a tiny hint of hop aftertaste. Hopefully they expand their distribution to the US soon because I want more!
Scurry is a dark honey ale brewed by Off Color Brewing from Chicago, IL. Honey, molasses, and flaked oats are the key to this beer’s soul. I loved this beer the minute I poured it. The inviting aroma is accompanied by a perfectly sweet & roasty flavor from start to finish. Off Color Brewing is quickly becoming one of my new favorites for both their beer and graphical style.
You can now find this beer at Craft Beer Cellar, yum yum!
Grampus is one of the newest beers by Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project out of MA. This “hoppy golden double mash” beer packs quite the punch with tons of sweetness and tropical fruit notes (but don’t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer). Their technique for brewing Grampus is quite interesting, you can check out their blog here explaining it all.
You can pick this beer up at one of my favorite craft beer stores, Craft Beer Cellar. Seriously, that place is a wonderland of labels and beer.
Alexander Green is a seasonal IPA brewed by Alexander Brewery in Emek Hefer, Israel. The beer had a mild citrus hop profile and finished smooth, especially considering the long journey that cute little turtle took to get to me. I’m extremely lucky to have tried this beer because it’s very rare outside of Israel. L'chaim!
Groomer is a Märzen brewed by the oldest microbrewery operating in Montana, Bayern Brewing . This was a simple beer but it had a great subtle roasty note to the end of each sip that made it stand out. This beer is released for the ski season so grab it while the slopes are still open!
Special thanks to everyone who donated to my fundraiser for The Stratton Foundation!
