A Pleasant Pale That Has Some Haze

Brewery: Eagle Rock Brewery Style: Hazy Pale Ale with Citrus ABV: 5.2%

My desire to drink craft beer is a lifelong one. Much like people who fall in love with punk music, or golf, or chess, or however you happen to spend your days, craft beer provides a community and a hobby and a cultural touchstone. It’s a lens through which you can interpret all of life. This beer is an example of how it is possible for me to drink and enjoy and love craft beer my whole life. It’s tasty, it’s lower ABV, it’s refreshing. It also employs some newer techniques like leaving the beer hazy. And, to top it all off, it’s brewed in collaboration with Schaner Family Farms using their organic Oro Blanco grapefruit, navel oranges, and Meyer lemons. This beer really hits all the check boxes for me.
