DOW (Drinks of the Week) Featured: River Horse Special Ale

This week we hit the second River Horse Brewing beer with their American Amber Ale also known as Special Ale.  IMG_4075.jpg

The Facts:

ABV: 5.5%

IBU: 22

My unsophisticated take on it:  It’s an amber ale like many other amber ale’s.  Not bad, I don’t know if  it will ever stick out in my mind like some other beers.  I liked their Roly Poly a bit more.  The boys from Jersey do have some other styles I would like to give a shot before I dismiss them from entering my Garage Fridge again.  They have a pumpkin I’ll try this fall and a Summer Blonde that I will track down some time this summer.  Keep up the good work boys.

Other Beers, Drinks, and Shit:

I didn’t drink too much this week……. yeah I didn’t think you guys would believe that one.  Here are some of the other things I allowed to enter my body.

Sam Adams:  Yeah I thru down on a few of these while watching the Sixers take it to the Miami Heat.  My bro had a variety pack so I couldn’t resist.

Metro One by Blue Earl Brewing.  Delicious.  I had this while scarfing down some grub at Metro Pub and Grill.  This is my go to when I eat there.

Oh and some miller lites.  This is what fills my fridge so I don’t drink all the good stuff up.

Recommendations from friends.  

From the Lebanese Lion:  He was some where lost in the Astral Plane when he some how stumbled across 2013 Goose Island Bourbon Stout and 2011 Dogfish Head 120.  I believe he could see sounds after those.

Random Suggestion:  From the depths of the internet came Gun Hill Brewing Company out of NY.   I don’t know if I can find any of them locally but maybe they can send some my way.

If you guys have any suggestions please send them my way.  I will be in Connecticut in June so hook it up.

UP COMING BREWS and OUTINGS:

Ove the next few weeks we will be trying Straight to Ale Brewing Company out of Alabama and Mason Ale Works from California.
