Roundtable: Your Personality in a Beer Bottle
You are what you eat … but what about what you drink? Are you spicy, aggressive or strong? Are you sweet and citrusy? Are you bitter and sour? Maybe you have a few characteristics that overlap. We’ve asked the staff to pick what their beer personality would be if it was bottled up.
My beer personality profile would have to be Bell’s Two Hearted Ale. It’s the kind of beer that’s always there for you with great flavor. Not too aggressive in hops, and not too mellow that you forget about it. There is a balance of consistency and quality that will keep you wanting more.
Green flash hop head red. Because hair.
I would say Troegs Troegenator Double Bock since it has that deceiving ABV, Sure, in small quantities it can be manageable, but it always leaves that thick lacing so you never forget how things got out of hand so quickly. A natural instigator for sure …
Great Divide’s now extinct Samurai Ale, what many would assume to be a lager is actually a complex, crisp ale. The obvious similarities would lie in our Asian influences but I like to think the biggest comparison would be our ability to surprise.
Hmmmm… I would have to say Yuengling Lager would best fit my personality. We both can make really good friends anywhere. We don’t strive to be outlandish, we’re more go with the flow type of guys. We’re also available to just about everybody’s budget.
I’d be something home-brewed. Because you’ll never find it at a club, and it needs CONSTANT attention to work right (even though not a lot of people will ever hear of it).
New Belgium’s Fat Tire would best represent me because of it’s easygoing and approachable taste, my fondness for Colorado, and cycling as a lifestyle.
Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout. Love breakfast, love the Commonwealth of Kentucky and love bourbon.
I would definitely be an Imperial IPA, so I am going with the utlra-Imperial Pliny the Younger Triple IPA from Russian River. I can be extremely difficult to get ahold of at times, just like this limited release beer. I am too outspoken and strong-headed to be a run-of-the-mill IPA, and the Triple has a much more extroverted flavor to it. This brew is also light complected like I am. And just like this ancient Roman politician, I look fantastic in a laurel wreath and dig villas on Lake Como.
Hippy Sippy – Imperial Stout – Fat Head’s Brewery.
Coffee, Chocolate, and hippies = why not!! Although some could argue that I am not the biggest hippy out there – compared to the rest of my family – I’d like to say that it runs through my veins just a little. I love to enjoy my beer one sip at a time and enjoy the transformation that this brings about. Having an open mind is important to me and this beer helps me do just that!!
