I am firmly aware of the fact that people in the U.S. can’t drink beer until they are 21. Knowing that, I still made the conscious decision when I first started blogging that i wouldn’t curse. I’ve seen other bloggers curse tons, and I feel that most of them do it in lieu of taking the time to think of something entertaining.
Today’s beer from Islamorada Beer Co. gets me perilously close to breaking that rule. Which is why I now have to review Beaches Be Crazy (Brown Ale, 5.7% ABV, 24 IBU).
It’s a pretty solid brown ale, which is great since I really enjoy brown ales. It’s a big, chewy malt character resplendent with a light molasses and brown sugar quality,
mixed with some breadiness.
The added kick comes from aging in a particularly warm and cozy Louisville Distilling Co. bourbon barrel. It has a decadent, boozy sweetness, but any sort of overly heady alcoholic burn is thankfully not present. It’s inviting and thick, full of flavor.
So, regardless of how crazy those ‘beaches’ are, the beer is a particularly good one. No matter how big a pansy writer you might be.
