Rhinegeist Brewery | Dad

Rhinegeist Dad
Paul Lewis

To all the hard-working dads out there just waiting for their opportunity to crack open a cold one after a long day of doing dad stuff, Happy (early) Father’s Day! I wanted to showcase the perfect beer for such an occasion that just so happens to hold a very special place in my liver. Dad is a malty, heavy Red Ale that comes out of Rhinegeist Brewery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Yes, I know it’s June and this is a technically a Winter Ale, but hear me out. A good friend of mine who lives outside of Cincinnati sent me a couple six packs a few weeks ago as a way to celebrate my introduction to fatherhood. My wife and I are expecting a baby boy in July, and this was a wonderful and very fitting way to welcome me into my new role.

A complex Red Ale that showcases a crisp, Dad has a bitter burst of flavor and aroma reminiscent of a rainy, autumn walk in the woods. A bright, hazy caramel color with a bold, tan head. The juicy flavors of Bravo, Chinook and El Dorado hops give off a dry, yet flavorful taste of biscuit and burnt caramel complete with a slightly sweet lingering finish on the tongue. At 6% ABV, this beer no doubt serves as a great beer for dads and dads-to-be on Father’s day.
