Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 10 – Special Labor Day Edition

Labor Day celebrates the hard working blue collar labors. It seems a lot of the jobs and positions for hard working labors that this holiday was founded and meant to celebrate are gone from this country. So many machines, robots and foreign outsourcing took these jobs away from the American citizens. With that said, Hats off to all the laborers left in the USA including the welders, plumbers, assembly line workers, truck drivers and all the other hard working stiffs out there.

Now I am not trying to go on a political rant, but I think the brewers and hard working folk that work hard to make all the beer we love should be celebrated on Labor Day. Brewing beer is a labor of love but it is also hard work. To everyone working in the breweries from the guy driving the fork lift, to the person filling kegs and growlers, to the head brewer thank you all for your labor of love!

Wiseacre Brewing Co is a new brewery in Memphis, TN in the last couple years. Memphis is an AMAZING city! I love it but it really didn’t have many breweries of craft beer places until the last 3 years. It took this new national craft beer boom for Memphis to really get going of local craft beer. One of my best friends owns Memphis Filling station and have me this bottle. It aged almost 4 months after I got it before I opened it today.

Snowbeard – Wiseacre Brewing (Memphis, TN) ABV 9.5% Barelywine 4 out of 5

Dark orange color with a thick white head. It’s a thick ale you cannot see through. Strong malt flavor with hoppy after taste. Scent of malts and grain. A strong beer with a even stronger after taste.
