image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into third beer from Hideout Brewing.  It is their Strawberry Brown Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their Gangster IPA, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this brown ale.

It has a unclear dark brown color with constant tan head. The aroma has a fresh rip strawberry notes. The taste has a heavy strawberry with a heavy tart aftertaste. It is a sipping beer.

In the end, I am always looking to see what this craft  brewery is putting on the market.  They keep me looking in their sampler twelve pack of 22oz bottles to see what they put in there.  I was interested to see how their version of Strawberry Brown Ale came out.  It is a sipping beer but others can believe it drinkable. It is different. I am not saying it is the bad or good thing.  I do not know if I like it or not.  I kind of like it.  I am pretty much on the fence.  I recommend it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, this craft brewery takes beer to the extreme and beyond.  They are like Right Brain in some realms.  The problem with this craft brewery is everything that comes out are small batch brews.  There is nothing wrong with that.  I just wish they put out more products of same brew. They want to do some weird beers and they make mistakes.  The beers that are mistakes  are sneaking good brews.  I believe they try to do this all time.  They have a hard time remaking and not the same.  This beer is average brew.  I do not get too much of the stout notes.  It is pretty different as a stout.  I recommend this beer if you can find it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Ending, I know many of you out there from my readers here and friends of mine.  They all know that I am not a fan of this craft brewery.  I just feel that they could be make better beers.  They have no pressure right now to check anything.  Michigan craft beer market is still growing along with their drinkers.  Once it is hits the peak.  I believe they will need to change some things up at that time.  I just wished they made better beer, however, this beer is pretty good.  It is better than most of their beers.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Perrin Black Ale


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Perrin Brewery.  It is their Black Ale.  This beer was a Black Lager.  They changed this beer to an ale to keep up with demand.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this black ale.

It has a jet black color with a tan color head at first that disappears over time. The smell has a chocolate with coffee like notes. The taste of this light body ale has a chocolate to coffee like notes. It has a heavy malty notes but still light like a light Lager. The aftertaste has a nutty finish that hangs around. It is extremely drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.perrinbrewing.com):

Perrin Black ABV 5.8% IBU 25

The Black Ale is low in gravity, clean, crisp, and flavor-filled; giving off a bread-like aroma. This beer proves that deep colors do not signify rich potency. Our Black Ale is deceptively light on the tongue.

Closing, this brewery is one of my favorite craft breweries in the State Of Michigan.  I am a fan of Petoskey Brewery, Right Brain, Frankenmuth Brewery, and Canton Brew Works.  The goal for this craft brewery is to brew beers that are drinkable and does not matter the beer style.  I will say they did a great job on this brew.  This is not my favorite beer style. I am not saying this is a bad beer.  It is a really good beer and respect what they did with this beer.  I can see many people liking this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
