A philosphy of Beer – and inaugural review

First, a philosphy of beer:

Ok, that’s out of the way.

As for a first review I think it only appropriate to quote the Bard (I am, of course, talking about Bob Dylan). “You gotta have heart. You gotta have lots of things. You gotta have a waterproof hat, and a dog you can trust. You gotta have your girlfriend’s credit card…”

I’m confident that Mr. Zimmerman would agree that you also gotta have a favorite pale ale. An ale that reminds you just why you fell in love with drinking good beer. An aroma that wakes your senses in the same way as the first morning pot of coffee; an initial flavor across your tongue like the spoonful of fruity pebbles into which you inconceivably (but fortuitously) dropped a handful of sourpatch kids. All the while a rock-solid baseline of malt and barley hold fast against the excess that leads to mere frivolity – a weatherbeaten, centuries-old upright bass accompanied by the jazz-fusion stick man who, today, respectfully restrains himself to the high hat and snare in a loving rendition of his favorite classic.

You gotta have lots of things. At the top of my list is a cold refreshing pint of Flying Dog’s “Doggie Style” Classic American Pale Ale. Until next time, drink heartily and well.
