WHEN A 12-PACK WON'T DO
By Josh Liddy
Summer is officially here. And what better way to spend the weekend on the lake or by the pool than with a nice cold beer? BUT, what do you do when a 12 pack isn't enough but a 30 pack is just overkill? FEAR NOT! We have a variety of offerings in.... wait for it... 15 packs! Here is what we've got:
Founders All Day IPA
This is the beer and brewery that started both the 15 pack and session IPA. This is my personal go-to session ale. Crisp, light, and refreshing; on the nose, you get nice aromas of pine and citrus. On the tongue, the citrus is very prevalent, with hints of grapefruit. At 4.7% ABV, the brewers describe it best: "Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp."
Founders PC Pils
Another fantastic offering from Founders. This beer is a spin on the classic pilsner style. This isn't your dad's pilsner; with the use of a variety of hops, this beer is much more aromatic than you would expect from this style. This beer comes in at a very close second for me in the 15-pack format. at 5.5% ABV, this beer is equally crushable!
Oskar Blues Pinner Throwback IPA
This is a great beer from a great brewery. These guys stepped it up a notch, though, and this beer is released in a 16 pack! At 4.9%, this brew lives up to its name as a throwback IPA. The aroma is very fruity and citrusy. I will be taking this beer with me next time I go on water!
SweetWater Hash Session IPA
Another awesome session IPA. SweetWater became available in Little Rock a few months back, and it has been flying off the shelves since. This 15-pack arrived just in time for summer! Very aromatic with fruit and citrus. At 4.2% ABV, this is another great pool or lake beer!
