So... everyone else is talking about their favorites... I thought I would mention mine. It is from Brattleboro Vermont (that is in the south) and by far the best beer ever! Their many varieties, like their extra special bitter or smoked porter are even hard to get in Vermont, where I anxiously await the day each month when it arrives to my local grocer. What is it - I ask myself- about this beer that is so wonderful in every way?? Well, definitely the attention that is paid to every single brew. It always seems to me that brewers eventually stretch beyond their reach, past what they are good at and into the realm of uncertainty. Not McNeill’s, McNeill’s I suppose is made by someone who truly loves ALL of the forms of beer that they concoct. From the crazy hoppy ipa to the delicious stout, these people have beer truly figured out. Right now I am having a sip on their unfiltered seasonal Scotch Ale, which is bottle conditioned. Deep roasted amber in color and rounded in scotch ale flavors of coffee, chocolate, hazelnut it is truly an exceptional brew after a long hard days work during the depths of winter...Yummy!... what do you think? Have you had it? What’s your favorite?
