2016 Craft Beer Advent Calendar- Day 4

beer-advent-19-of-24

Wheat beers of any form are my ultimate favourite.  The more it tastes like wheat fields the happier I am. The first time I had this beer was at a weekly event called Triple B’s at Lisa Marie. It’s a Tuesday night of beer (cheap), burgers (massive) and bingo (uber cheesy but super fun). They were offering up a pint for $5 and even though cheap always tastes delicious I have easily paid full price for this beer. 

Grasshopper from Big Rock Brewery is a very drinkable wheat ale with an ABV of 5 and low IBU 16. A “have a lot of” type of beer.

Cheers to 24 days of Beer.

The next post of a series of beer articles breaking down all there is to know about our favorite beverage.  I will now delve deeper into each individual style and over the course of many weeks I will introduce you to each and every one.

As I mentioned before I’m no expert. I don’t have any beer sommelier qualifications. All I know is I like to drink beer and I drink a lot of it and I try lots of different kinds. I’ve listened and learned.

“Gateway beer to” refers to the style you may want to try if you like this one.
