I love my wine and I know I talk and blog a lot about it, but this time around I went with beer. Before I was a big wino, I was a big beer girl. I still love a good beer every now and then, so I asked the cashier one day at Bevmo for some suggestions.
I’m not the biggest fan of IPA’s, but I like ones that aren’t too strong. He gave me the great suggestion of the Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA. It’s not too hoppy and is really smooth. Even my boyfriend liked it and he can’t stand IPA’s! This beer goes really well with poultry, seafood and especially spicy food. It’s a yummy full bodied beer.
Not sure what an IPA is or never tried one? I’ll tell you. An IPA is an abbreviation for India Pale Ale. It’s a more hoppy style of beer that actually originated in England, not India. It definitely has a strong after taste so it takes some getting used to. My brother and one of my sister’s really enjoy these.
So if you’re like me and aren’t too fond of that strong after taste and hoppy flavor, definitely give this beer a try. Even if you tried an IPA before and didn’t like it, I highly recommend trying this one.
