PTU Snooty Beer of the Week Returns
I took a little break from the Snooty beer listing but am coming back this week with one that is a great way to get introduced to Snooty Beer: Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold. This is one of the best featured beers that were available at Hop Devil Grill during the Hater J birthday celebration.
This beer is a good one to introduce to your friends that seem to drink Miller Lite (sorry M@d Scientist) every time you go to a bar with real beer. While relatively strong (6% ABV), it has a light color and isn't as bitter as some of the more hoppy snooty beers like an IPA. You can start feeding your crappy beer drinking friend these and the light color and somewhat less bitter taste will lull them into a false sense of security until they realize this stuff is twice as strong as their normal light beer crap. Next thing you know they will be pre-gaming with Dogfish Head World Wide Stout.
If you want to read a more detailed technical analysis you can find that here, but otherwise just pick some up this summer.
