4 Craft Beers That’ll Lead Your Palate to Salvation
On the eighth day, God created these four beers. (Probably.)
When money’s tight, or your schedule gets busy, you eat things you regret. But, we’re not talking about buying a $2 cheeseburger instead of a $12 organic kale salad. We’re talking about committing one of the worst sins out there: drinking crappy beer. Well, your prayers have been answered, because we found four fantastic brews bound to save your soul and deliver you to the promised land. Check ‘em out!
10 Barrel Brewing Co.
While it’s not THEend of days, Apocalypse IPA is the perfect brew to end YOUR day, especially paired with some mouthwatering pub fare. As the flagship IPA at 10 Barrel Brewing, this beer combines eight different varieties of whole leaf and pellet hops for a perfectly balanced (yet full) hop flavor that’s nothing short of a religious experience.
Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout
Epic Brewing Company
Devoting about a year to finish just one batch, Epic Brewing Brewmaster Kevin Crompton has unwavering faith in the Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout. A disciple of the brewery’s Exponential Series, this divine beer offers unique notes of dark roasted coffee and cocoa. But, be careful. With an ABV that ranges from 11.6% to 12.6%, this Baptist can really sneak up on you.
Colorado Red Ale
Black Shirt Brewing Co.
The number seven is supposed to be good, especially in threes. In that case, we’ll take three 7% ABV Colorado Red Ales from Black Shirt Brewing. This delicious red IPA offers a complex body with aromas of lemon, freshly cut flowers, and juniper. The hop-forward approach brings a welcomed bitterness that’s complimented by five distinctive malt flavors. So, fill up your growlers and get to sipping.
Hercules Double IPA
Great Divide Brewing Co.
As the son of the Zeus, Hercules was one strong dude. So, it makes sense that a double IPA named after him should pack a serious punch. Featuring tons of hops, this heavy-hitting brew is nutty, sweet, and aggressive. A hero of a beer from Great Divide Brewing, Hercules has placed in the Australian International Beer Awards three years in a row, and was named one of the “Top 100 Beers on Planet Earth” by BeerAdvocate.
