Do you have that one beer you typically always have on hand? I’m sure you are out scouring the planet for those mystical beers your UNTAPPD buddies are raving about, but what do you always have in the refrigerator?
Locally, I struggle with consistent beer offerings and once I find a beer I love, it may be hard to find the next time I want it. However, I can always count on my local grocery store when it comes to 21st Amendment’s, ‘Brew Free! Or Die IPA‘. I have written about this beer, and commented a lot about it over the last few years, but it really has become a “go-to” beer for me. I am a self-proclaimed beer snob who loves stouts but I find myself enjoying nearly every style of beer out there.
Why an IPA, though? Maybe it is based on the food I like to eat regularly, or maybe it’s just the clean hoppy bite I enjoy – who knows? What I do know, is that I will fly to San Francisco to have words with the folks at 21st Amendment if they stop making this beer. Brew Free is a nearly perfect example of a West Coast style IPA in my opinion. It hits the 7% ABV, 70 IBU sweet spot I enjoy.
I posted a video “Beer Introduction” on the YouTube channel for anyone not familiar with the beer.
Happy Valentine’s Day! May your evening be filled with love, laughter, and good drink – Cheers!
