Bob’s Bearded Red
Ernest Hemmingway once said that “You should always do sober what you said you would do drunk. That’ll teach you to keep your mouth shut!” Bob and I had a few too many pints at his bar one night and got talking about how awesome this would be and so here it is! This is a beer that I made for a very good friend of mine and is the house beer at his bar/my local. Pure. Pub. Pint.
Tasting Notes: Nitrogen charged and malt driven with a softness of caramel malt on the palate and a drying finish from Ontario-grown “piney” Chinook hops. Very understated.
