IPA FROM SAWDUST CITY BREWING PERFECT ADULT BEVERAGE FOR WARM WEATHER FRIDAYS
Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.
And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.
With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.
This week why don’t your try…
SAWDUST CITY – GOLDEN BEACH PALE ALE
Can you bottle a season? Probably not (despite what Star Trek episodes might tell us)
And yet…when you think warm weather patios, cold drinks and good beer, this IPA comes pretty damned close.
An inviting pour of nice golden lager with a three finger head, it’s a refreshing thirst quencher that boasts hints of citrus and wheat. The lightness of the colour is backed up by a gentle lemony aroma. And like other strong lagers, the foamy head dissipates slowly while not detracting from the overall taste.
Ideal for patio sessions, but the best use of this hoppy ale might be on the dock during cottage season. It’s dryish body makes the can experience vibrant, meaning it will do well in the cooler for an afternoon.
If you are looking for a meal to join in, it’s probably best paired with lighter fare. Think salads, chicken dishes or sandwiches.
You can pick up Sawdust City’s Golden Beach Pale Ale at the LCBO and local pubs. Read more about it right here.
