Get in my Facehole: Avondale Brewery’s Spring Street Saison
Weirdest craft beer found in the cooler at our local Connecticut liquor store… Gandhi-Bot!
Shandies are our favorite beverage for summer drinking. They’re sweet without being syrupy and boozy without impeding your ability to have a normal day after knocking two back at brunch. Even though here in Chicago you usually find a shandy made with beer and lemonade, we’re loyal to the traditional UK recipes that call for citrus sodas. Any light-colored beer will do, as will any citrus soda, but we recommend a wheat beer and pretty much anything but Sprite. To make your own, mix and match your favorites in equal parts directly in a glass, beer first. Garnish with orange and lemon slices, if that’s your thing. We used Hoegaarden with a carbonated lemonade we found at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods brand blood orange Italian soda. It was fucking delicious.
OKAY LISTEN UP.
IF YOU LIKE LAGERS, COOL.
IF YOU LIKE ALES, COOL.
IF YOU LIKE FRUITY BEERS, COOL.
IF YOU LIKE IPAs, COOL.
IF YOU LIKE BEER, COOL COOL COOL COOL.
IF YOU MAKE OTHERS FEEL BAD ABOUT THEIR BEER PREFERENCES, NOT COOL. NEVER COOL. YOU ARE THE ANTITHESIS OF COOL. YOU RUIN THE MAGIC OF BEER FOR THOSE AROUND YOU. PLEASE CEASE AND DESIST WITH YOUR SNOBBY BULLSHIT.
I tried this beer tonight at a pour house, which had hundreds of different beers available, even limited quantity releases from various microbreweries. It was heaven, but it was also hell, because how in the hell am I supposed to pick?
I settled on this beer, Wheach, partially because of the pun in the name. It’s from O’fallon Brewery in Missouri. I figured I couldn’t go wrong with a fruity wheat beer for a hot summer night. The smell of this beer is INCREDIBLE. The taste was pretty good, too, and was just the consistency and light fruitiness I was looking for. I wish the peach finish was heavier, but as it stands, I did like how light the beer was overall. I just love peaches, okay?
When to drink: Hot summer nights or just because you love peaches. Food pairings would probably be desserts and lighter dishes like fish or salad. I think this beer would be awesome with chocolate.
