Here are the beers I will be serving to my friends and family to ring in 2013!
With all the different flavors of appetizers my wife will be putting out, I want my guests to enjoy beers that will be lively, crisp, and are able to effortlessly morph from shrimp to chicken as well as “do the shimmy” with cheese and salty snacks. I like to serve them in champagne glasses so my friends can enjoy different flavors in moderation.
Beer number two is going to be Scuttlebutt Amber Ale. A bump up in malt character from the Pils, but it still has palate cleansing hop crispness.
Beer number three is a Belgian Beauty…Flying Dog’s Wildeman Farmhouse I.P.A. Such a well-attenuated brew full of tantalizing spicy notes and yeasty Belgian aromas. This beer does NOT have the typical American hop bite, (due to a secret blend of hops), but rather a tart, citrus-like finish.
