Drafts From the Cultural Hub of the Midwest: Great Lakes Commodore Perry

Web Stuff:
TYPE/STYLE:  India Pale Ale: The Bow Brewery in London exported this pale ale to the multitude of British soldiers, colonial administrators and settlers in India. This pale ale style was a strong candidate for shipping due to the high potency and high level of attenuation.

FOOD COMPLEMENTS:  Red meats and strong cheeses.

BRAND NAME:  This monumental India Pale Ale honors the hero from The War of 1812 who battled the enemy on Lake Erie.

Is it tasty?  It is a little bitter, but still very drinkable.  As you get to the bottom of the mug, it becomes a little sweeter and nuttier while still having some bite at the finish.

Grade: B
