This week we were joined by the group collectively known as 3 Guys & A Beer'd along with 4 of their tasty beverages.
Shaving Cream Ale: Their take on a classic and somewhat forgotten style. This version actually has some lactose sugar for an extra depth of creaminess balanced against the citrus hops creates a beer that is highly drinkable and extremely approachable for anyone.
Carbond'Alien Pale Ale: The story beyond this well balanced pale ale has to do with the supposed alien crash that occurred in Carbondale some years ago, whether or not it happened is up for debate but a beer celebrating the story is great in our book! This very well balanced pale ale is not as hoppy as many pale ales have become now but instead stays true to the style and is highly drinkable and makes for a great session beer.
Ladder Dive Rye IPA: Poor Jon had to sacrifice his body for the naming of this beer, but it was certainly worth it! The rye backbone of this beer combined with the hops give it a unique character and makes for a highly drinkable and unique IPA.
Malarkey Irish Style Red Ale- Another unique take on a classic style. The subtle chocolate notes come through and create a very sweet Irish red ale that certainly stands on its own against the mass produced Irish red ales available now.
This weeks special 5th beer:
This is absolutely a beer that lives up to its name. Upon the first sip everyone in the studio felt the deep burn hit the back of their throats and we nearly lost a co-host with Johnny Blindside taking it the hardest. We did have one die hard fan though with Jon declaring he could drink it all day. If you are curious as to what our reaction was like check this video, it was very similar to these reactions!
