You know what i love about this time of year? The great beer selection. Everyone has great seasonal offerings in addition to their regular line up.
I'm was at the grocery store the other day and I came across a couple of the more unusual offerings.
Ed Hardy, former tattoo artists and current clothing designer has decided to get into the beer business. His first attempt is a uninspired, lackluster lager made in Mexico. It's your basic adjunct lager. Macro beer taste at micro beer prices. I can't believe they have balls to sell this shit for eight and a half buck a sixer.
The other strange brew is Beer. Yup it's called Beer. Beer Light to be exact. With such an inspired name I can only imagine that it lives up to it's name. I didn't get an opportunity to try it. It only comes in a Thirty-pack of cans. I apologize for my lack of commitment.
The one good thing I can say about Beer Light is it's price. At 16 bucks for thirty beers, that Porsche will be in your garage much sooner than you thought.
One beer that's not for sale in grocery stores, but is available today is Hoppers The First SnowAle. Available at Hoppers for $7.50 in 25 oz bottles and at the Bayou later in the week.
