When I first found out about Central 28 in DeBary, they had plans and artwork for three canned
releases. Of those, only the first, UpRiver, is out and available in stores along the I4 corridor
(along with a really cool canlooking coozie that they posted on their Instagram feed).
The other two will be coming very soon, hopefully. And if they are, one of those, Dancing Pierre
(Pale Ale, 5.9% ABV, 30 IBU), needs to be in beer fridges along that same swath of land.
I would assume Pierre is the bear.
Don’t know. Didn’t ask.
It’s a bright, effervescent beer with a deep, honey color. Stylewise, it’s a Belgianstyle Pale, so
they did a good job of giving the beer a great flavor of bubblegum and traditional Belgian
funkiness. Nothing too terribly strong, but enough to give it a great malty sweet flavor.
Interestingly enough, there’s a light fruitiness to the beer, especially on the aftertaste. Having that light, sweet flavor reminiscent of apples and grape is quite enjoyable, indeed.
Hopefully by this summer beer drinkers will be able to pick up sixpacks of Dancing Pierre. With
or without the bear.
