In honor of the 4th of July, I’ve decided to feature a beer that would compliment any barbeque: Wacko Summer Seasonal by Magic Hat Brewing Company in Burlington, Vermont.
This summer seasonal is a great summer beer. Beet juice adds a little bit of color and sweet. It slightly departs from typical summer ale – it is less fruity and has a stronger hops flavor. Because of this, it would hold up well to a spicy BBQ sauce this grilling season.
*This is the fourth installment of a multi-week series on beer where I will be reviewing regional beers from across the country Special thanks this week to Glenn Sparks for his help in tasting. Enjoy!
