Mount Rushmore-Microbrew Edition
Beer here!!! Get your beer here! The perfect drink for the World Series, Thursday Night Football, or just about any night of the year. A drink for all seasons. A drink that one founding father said is proof that “God exists and wants us to be happy.”
When I was a kid, American beer had a reputation for being bad. Really bad. Now we are in a renaissance of beer making in the United States.
This week’s Mount Rushmore is dedicated to Craftbreweries. The only rule is that the breweries should have a reasonable level of distribution. They don’t have to be found in all 50 states but they should have wider distribution than the very excellent Southern Oregon Brewery which is largely only found in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington.
1. Dogfish Head (Delaware): One of the leading tastemakers and grand experimenters of the craft beer scene. There motto is off-centered ales for off-centered people and they prove it. I am a big fan of the Ancient Ale series which uses science to create proto-beers from antiquity. There collaborations and seasonal releases are also excellent like the Punkin Ale and Lambic-style Fort beer.
2. Russian River (California): North Bay’s Russian River brewery is currently the most in demand brewery in the nation. At least according to the surprisingly skinny guy who works behind the counter at one of my favorite fancy beer stores. This brewery favors worked with Belgian styled sour beers with Catholic inspired names like Damnation, Temptation, Supplication, Consecration, and Benediction. They are also known for their IPAs Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger. The classical names mark the erudition of these master brewers.
3. Bell’s (Michigan): I’ve only had it once because it is almost impossible to find in the Bay Area but Bell’s from Michigan is another shining light in the craftbeer movement and they are very tasty.
4. Against the Grain (Kentucky): Easily findable because of the cheeky art of their bottles, Against the Grain is relatively new to the craft beer scene. My favorite is the barrel aged Kentucky Rye Chiquen. Most other beers have names with puns or off-color jokes like Flesh Gourd’in, Genetic Cul De Sac, and Tejas Te.
