Beer Tasting on the Porch! Big Elm Brewing

It’s Porch Time!

Even though it’s a breezy 52 Degrees here in MA…….It’s never TOO Cold to Try a New Beer!

I’ve put on my Irish Sweater, step onto the porch and join the Birds and Squirrels that congregate around my bird feeders.

Today a Co-Worker…….his name is Moe…..Brings in a 5 pack of canned beer, he had one that he DID Not Enjoy…….Knowing I’m a beer Connoisseur he offers it to me to try. WOW! Free Beer……Something I’ve never tasted? I was Psyched!

It is a 413 FARMHOUSE ALE from BIG ELM BREWING

The can says it is “Brewed and Canned with Pride in the Berkshires Sheffield, MA”

Realizing, because I’m from MA, that the 413 is the beer’s Area Code, Good Call……No Pun intended…..LOL!

It is a 12oz Can and the Alcohol by Volume is 6%

OKAY….OKAY…..You want to know how it tastes!!!!!!!

I pour it into my Frosty Mug and it’s a Nice Pale color…….Nice Foamy Head….Heeeee…….

Here it goes…..I raise it to my lips……..Gulp……….

It has a smooth texture and then the Hoppiness hits you! Almost a citrus hint……..No wonder Moe didn’t like it….He’s use to

drinking Coors Light…….Nothing this sophisticated!!! Sorry Moe….. šŸ™‚

I LIKE It!!!! I also like the description on the side of the can…..

Also…..It’s hard to read but in the Blue area it says ” This Beverage is Best Enjoyed in a Glass” Love it! Class up that can…….

Can we talk a minute about the packaging????? Got to LOVE the Plastic holder around the top of the cans!

Sturdy, Pop Offs…….So much better than the plastic, flimsy 6 pack holders from days gone by………..

Side Note…….I use to have a Friend that used to craft with the old 6 pack holders…..LOL…..Anyone else use to make items with them?

One other thing…….This Beer has a Use By Sticker on top of the plastic Holder…….Don’t have to put on those glasses…hold it under

a light to find the hash mark like some bottles have…..

No need to worry…..These will be drunk by the end of this week!!!!!

okay…..as I have been writing I have been drinking this 413 Farmhouse and I can feel the effects! Whoa…Poignant little sucker!

I give it a 5 out of 5 STARS! Nice Color, Taste, and Punch! LOL

Till Next Time……… Get Back To Your Roots…….Big Elm Brewing
