New Beer Blog Erie Brewing Bayfront Blonde Ale

In this beer blog, we are going to get into the first beer from Erie Brewing.  It is their Bayfront Blonde Ale.  Erie Brewery was founded in 1993 under the name of Hoppers Brewpub.  In 2010, they are in fourteen states.  In 2012, they went under new ownership and restructure the company.  Let us get into this beer.

It has a clear golden color without a head that does not hang around. The head is white in color at first. The aroma has a malty to sweet corn notes. The taste has a heavy corn notes with a corn like aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable.

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


Hand Crafted Blonde: Bright, citrusy flavors give way to a pleasant, honey sweet finish.

Alcohol by Volume: 4.2%    Degree’s Plato: 11    Hop Bitterness IBUs: 17

Availability: Year Round

Closing, to me, blonde and golden ales remind me too much of golden lagers. It does not have a dry crisp finish unlike this blonde ale.  With all that said, this beer style is not favorite but I always like tring new beers.  I am not a fan.  This does not mean that you will not like this beer.  I recommend this beer for at least a try.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

New Blog Big Horn Ram Blonde Beer

In this blog, I am on location at The Ram in Wheeling, IL. This is the third blog on this brewery, please look back at the older blogs on back story if this brewery. If you have read them, then you know about this beer.

We are going to talk about one of their everyday beers called Blonde Beer.  It sits in the glass as a clear with a yellow to golden color. There really is no smell to this beer. As far as taste, you can taste the carbonation while the sweetest kicks in halfway through the tasting experience.

There was a menu lying around so here is the description of the beer:

Big Horn Blonde award-winning golden ale, light bodied with mild malt sweetness and delicately hopped for a crisp, refreshing finish.

ABV 4.4% SRM 6.0 IBUs 20 Grain Pale Munich Hops Cascade and Willamette.

In closing, I am going to be honest.  I am really not a fan of this beer nor the style. I really can see people loving this beer. It is a very drinkable beer and session. It is a perfect day like today in Chicago where it is 90+ degree today. This will make the American lager drinker to the wheat beer drinker happy. I do not see many hop heads liking this beer. Enjoy it! Drink it! Metal it! \m/
