BEER CLINIC :: A Mini Session

Ed: A short report from the Beer Clinic by Dr. Carol Westbrook.

Last night we visited the Shoreline Brew Pub in Michigan City, IN, where we tasted 3 amazing and unique brews. This microbrewery is not small in imagination.

(1) The Goat is back!  Curse the Goat is a dobblebock that is released for Lent / Cubs season. It’s all malt, low on hops, high in alcohol, and as smooth as you can imagine. We wait all year for this release.

2) Tom, one of the brewers, gave us a sneak preview of  Rillo Rye. This IPA-like beer, at 9% ABV, is made with rye and is generously flavored with Amarillo hops. The rye gives it a smooth mouthfeel and unique taste which is well-balanced with the grapefruit of the hops. Easy to drink.

(3) Batch 300 is …yet to be released. It may be the only Imperial Pilsner you will ever taste. Made with German malts, German hops, and German yeast ,brewed to a remarkable 9% ABV. It is light and refreshing, just right for those summer evenings. Can’t wait till it’s released.
