American Craft Beer week is May 17 – 23, so I thought it would be fitting to shine the spotlight on SOHO’s beer list in this post.
One recent addition to SOHO’s beer list is Terrapin’s Hopsecutioner. Beer Advocate says of Hopescutioner, brewed in Athens, Georgia, “This is a balanced IPA for sure…The malt comes at you with different flavors ranging from grainy, to grassy, and also with a sharp kind of rye spice. Overall not an in your face IPA but definitely a well made and interesting blend of flavors.” One other Terrapin brew to try at SOHO is The Dark Side Stout. This Belgian Style Imperial Stout is loaded with subtle tastes of dark Belgian chocolate, roasted dark grains and just a hint of smokiness in the finish.
Beer lovers visiting SOHO may also want to consider trying Jolly Pumpkin’s Luciernaga. Brewed in Dexter, Michigan, this artisan pale ale earned a bronze medal at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival.
Another beer to consider sipping at SOHO this summer is the Full Sail Amber Ale. The Amber Ale, brewed in Hood River, Oregon, is sweet and malty, medium-bodied, and has a spicy, floral hop finish. The flagship of the Full Sail brewery, the Amber Ale has earned 12 gold medals at the World Beer Championships.
Finally, with French flavors and wines taking center stage at SOHO this month, we’ve added a French beer to our list – the Castelain Blond Biere de Garde. The Castelain offers a sweet palate and a great deal of finesse.
We hope you’ll stop in at SOHO soon for a tall, cold glass of your favorite beer. If there’s a great beer you think we should add to our list, please let me know in the comments section!
