As some of you have seen, i reviewed the Double Dead Guy Ale, which was gorgeous in the packaging alone…
For whatever reason, with beer packaging, i think that bigger IS better.
The 64oz growler they put their Dead Guy in, tastes far better in this form than in draught or singe 16oz bottles. I sit here on my 4th pint, toward the end of the growler and im still enamoured by how fresh and hefty the flavor is….
I like to think of Dead Guy like this….a piece of fresh baked bread, a thick, dense heavy bread, dipped in a super tart applesauce. Ive described it like this before, and alot of people will agree.
The best part, if im not mistaken, is that i can take said growler to the Rogue Ale House in North Beach, SF, and have it refilled. True, its only about $13 at BevMo, but man…just to say you got a beer refilled at a brewery….that is some shit youll ONLY see at Rogue or Speakeasy.
This is also the first strong, hoppy ale i ever got in CA….so it holds a special place.
Show up at the Orange Gallery, and im sure youll find yourself having a pint with me.
My score, 94 out of 100 points.
