Woodstock Inn Brewery “Pig’s Ear Brown Ale”

August 2, 2010 8:48 pm

This one also required a call to the brewery and special order to get but I think it will be worth it – at least according to Aaron Ouellette’s suggestion.  I had to pick the keg up at Ball Square Liquor Store in Somerville and while my experience there wasn’t great Erin, from the Woodstock Brewery, is amazing and is mailing me a tap handle for no other reason than I basically just asked.  AAA+ for Erin, I hope her boss is reading this post.

Woodstock’s description:

Pigs Ear Brown Ale won Grand National Champion for brown ales at the United States Beer Tasting Championships in 2004 and 2006. Medium bodied with a balance of roasted and crystal malts creating a hearty nutty flavor. Medium bitterness with a slightly sweet finish.
O.G. 1.054 / 25 IBUs / 4.3% abv

Even though it’s not a typical summer beer it sounds great (and has a “B” rating on BA).
