ABV: 5.9% | IBU: 23
I’ve found myself frequenting the booming brewing scene of Tampa Bay in recent months, and as an avid beer logger I usually find myself with flight-size pours and rarely more for any particular flavor or style, let alone a specific beer. If I buy a six pack, I’m usually picking it up to share with a few friends that don’t have regular access to it. So I must admit that it caught me by surprise when I found 3 Daughters Brewing‘s Rod Bender Red Ale to replace my typical wheel of flavors on a given football Sunday!
It’s no secret that 2016 has been quite the year for sour and wild beers; some even argue it is THE style category of the year. You can’t turn your head in a decent bottle shop without spotting a new flavored Gose, Berliner or raspberry sour blend. It is the key for many breweries to stick out in this new wave of names and labels.
Deep Southern roots and big dreams. Those are additives you’ll find inside each beer from Alabama’s Back Forty Beer Company.
It’s always a good start to the weekend getting a group text from your friend: “Hey, I brought back a different beer from each of the countries I’ve visited in Europe and I’d like to host a bottle share.” Granted, this friend would be flying back that morning! So, round up the troops, snag a couple of brews from our stash and head on down the way.
