I hope everyone had a wonderful, long weekend filled with great people and delicious brew! This weekend, we found a sampler pack in which we actually liked EVERY beer! That is hard to come by! Red Hook has a fabulous sampler that features their ESB, IPA, Copper Hook and Pilsner. Normally there is always at least one beer style in the 12-packs that I don’t care for – but all of these were yummy! If I had to pick my favorite, it would be the Copper Hook – mainly due to it’s maltiness. My second favorite was the Pilsner (which is weird because it’s the opposite of the Copper Hook) but it is such a clean, crisp Pilsner, that it’s perfect on a hot day.
I also love the new bottle shapes they have – sort of like the “Red Stripe” bottles. It’s enjoyable too, to pop each cap and read a new little message under each. Seeing things like “Cheers to 12oz. curls” or pictures of bananas, just makes you smile!
If you’re looking for a sampler to please everyone, pick this one up.
