We all know these people. Black clouds hang perpetually over their heads. You’ll be having the time of your life, and when they show up, bam! What a buzzkill. So what are you going to do? Serve up a couple of pints of this absolutely whimsical amber ale. At 6.7% alcohol, several sips are certain to pacify your frayed nerves. And why not? With this brew’s alluring balance between malty sweetness, hop bitterness, and the delightful zest of Centennial and Citra hops, you can already feel your spirits uplifting. And while we can’t guarantee this brew will transform those killjoys into merrymakers, at the least it might tweak their perpetual black clouds into more pleasant shades of amber.
