21st Amendment Toaster Pastry (Pop Tart Beer!) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Calypso and other experimental hops give this ruby ale a welcome bite, plus a few more in the hop back for a toasty-sweet aroma. Read More »

Beer Geek Nation Beer Review: 21st Amendment Brewery Brew Free or Die IPA

21st Amendment Brewery’s Brew Free or Die IPA is yet another craft beer in a can that gets a nod as a session-able IPA.  21st Amendment Brewery is based in San Fransisco, but the beer is actually brewed in Minnesota; I watched an interview with Shaun O’Sullivan, the company’s brewmaster, who said that he likened brewing the beer at another companies brewery was like bringing his own ingredients to a borrowed kitchen.  This example of an American IPA clocks in at 75 IBU’s and 7.0 ABV.  The can provides the following description of the beer, ” An India Pale Ale with a solid malt backbone and hoppy flavor.”  Let’s move on to the pour to see if that’s true. I poured this 12oz. can into a pint glass fairly aggressively and observed a perfect 2 finger dense head form over top of a beautiful ... Read More »
