Bitter Beer Of The Week

"The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind."
-Humphrey Bogart

This weeks selection is Magic Hat's #9. Not Quite Pale Ale. This is a great refreshing summertime beer. Perfect for having a few brews at the pool on a hot day. The extra hops give it plenty of flavor while the apricot essence gives it a little sweetness rarely found with pale ales. A very clever combination. The only downside to the number 9 is that it has a little lower alcohol content than I would prefer but you can purchase the Magic Hat 12 sampler with the Jinx Fall Strong Ale that has nearly 7% alcohol.
And if that don't convince ya. Check out Mike Gordon's Magic Hat Summer Variety Show on September 4th in Chicago, IL. This event is surrounded in mystery but we do know it is going to be some kind of performance to the sweet sounds of Mr. Mike Gordon. Cactus! Cactus! "A few burgers, a few beers, our fuckin' troubles are over dude."
