Today was a good day. I got beer in the mail. Good beer. Hoppy beer. Beer that’ll teach you how to change a tire.
The Magic Hat company in Vermont sent me samples of their seasonal brews. You may be familiar with the Magic Hat #9, which you can find at Flanagan’s and the like. Today they sent me HI.P.A. India Pale Ale and Poppy Agave Pilsner — both part of their new Spring Fever Variety 12-Pak bottle special.
They were beefy. Very beery, if you will. Would I order them over a Bass or their original #9? Probably not. I’m not a huge fan of Pale Ales or Pilsners. But if it’s free and addressed to me, I’ll try it. Next.
