Don’t Fear by Wormtown and CBC Hopheads Information to the Galaxy
Welcome to the Boston Higher Beer Bureau, our newest incarnation of the trusty suds reporting we’ve executed at DigBoston ever since folks referred to beer as suds. Actually, we keep in mind the times after we’d spend half our checks on fancy German bottles simply in order that we might evaluate them, whereas today breweries from throughout New England kindly ship us samplers and keep in contact. The BBBB is an try and return that love, all whereas sharing extra information concerning the innumerable microbreweries and pubs amongst us.
Coming into the craft beer part today is like strolling via the cereal aisle: pure and unadulterated paradise. Plenty of outstanding choices, a number of disgusting ones, definitely a ton of mediocre product, and once you’re fortunate, picks so scrumptious that you simply carry on returning for extra. Month after month, yr after yr. You probably have ever tasted Honey Smacks, then the music I’m singing.
Beer principally works in the identical approach. And since it’s a jungle on the market, with new pun-riffic IPAs and indulgent hoppy variants dropping every week, it helps to have some manufacturers which you could sometimes depend on. This may take time, endurance, and deep investigation; Dorchester Brewing Co., for instance, brews a number of the most interesting sips this facet of San Francisco, and not all the time in its personal pores and skin. In fact, I don’t all the time have sufficient time to learn the superb print and see what brewery is co-packing or bottling for whom, and in moments like these I attain for names that I do know can belief—standout standbys like Wormtown and Cambridge Brewing Co.
I suppose that’s how I came across Don’t Fear final month. Wormtown’s best-known IPA, Be Hoppy, has grow to be a frequent flyer in my residence fridge, and so it made sense to complete off the refrain. Whereas Be Hoppy is that excellent mixture of intelligent pun and scrumptious hop punch, Don’t Fear packs much less of a chunk than its taller and barely darker tallboy brother. That’s not a knock for me and it shouldn’t be for you both, although; these silver bullets aren’t for the hop-wary. At 5.eight% ABV, Don’t Fear is the proper midway bitter answer for day-drinking all summer season lengthy, a candy tongue bathe longtime followers of Wormtown’s flagship will start to worship in brief time in the event that they haven’t already.
After which there’s CBC’s Hopheads Information to the Galaxy, a 7% ABV triumph for the intense beer drinker who desires all of it. Phil and Will and their brew crew in Cambridge have executed good this time. Maybe higher than traditional if that’s even doable. This one’s easy however rugged, concurrently easy and sophisticated. There’s citrus bursting out of each sip, however I’d go as far as to suggest Information to the Galaxy to hopheads who usually are not significantly loopy about juicy treats. There’s sufficient motion bouncing round this universe to tickle nearly any palate.
Now right here’s the half the place I get sentimental. Maybe it’s as a result of I’ve been ogling the cans for Don’t Fear and Hopheads for a pair weeks now and have come to love having them in shut view, however I can positively see each of those beers having some severe endurance. The latter’s been round for 2 years sturdy already; the previous has a stable begin; each have the flavour and a killer can design that separate them from the typical four-pack.
