Don’t judge a beer by its label
Since we were kids we’ve been told “Never judge a book by its cover.” Well my friends, as adults we need to learn not to judge a beer by its label. Sanctum Brewing Co in Los Angeles has made a great beer called Death, a 100% Brettanomyces dry hopped Ale. When I opened a bottle of it last month I was amazed by how great it was. Super floral hoppiness up front with vibrant orange zest. The floral component becomes slightly fruity while the spicy yeastiness of the Brettanomyces balances it out on the finish. Such an expressive Beer, all the flavors playing their role perfectly, taking the mainstage when needed, but also willing to take up space downstage when asked.
