Food & Beer Friday :: I've been called a hipster.

I wasn't going to let the Whole 30 interfere with my Food & Beer Friday (especially not with Sarah co-hosting with me)!  I pre-planned and tried four beers for myself you all.

True story :: I've been told I'm the most hipster person my friend knows.  More truth :: CAP dressed her baby up in a mustache onesie to see me because I am so "hipster."  I also have an affection for large glasses, so of course I was drawn to Evil Twin Brewing Hipster Ale.  If I were you, I'd grab this beer in the can.  It comes in bottles too, but based on Evil Twin's "gypsy brewing" status, the bottles are pricey.  To preface, gypsy brewers travel all around making beer in other brewers.  The Hipster Ale was brewed in my backyard of South Carolina! The brewery is Westbrook Brewing.

Be prepared, this beer is hoppy!  It was actually much more hoppy than I expected.  Evil Twin is originally from Denmark, but they went American style when brewing this pale ale.  I believe the Pale Ale title threw me; this seemed more like an IPA.  The beer is a beautiful amber with a light colored head.  To be honest, I just love that it comes in a can.  It's a bit too hoppy to be a beach beer for me, but at 5% alcohol it would be just perfect for a springtime cookout!

Now it's time to head on over to check out Sarah's post!

Do you have a favorite Pale Ale?

I don't love extremely hoppy beer, but I really love this can! I have never heard of the brewery before, I'll have to see if they carry it near me!

I like the sounds of this! I tried my first Evil Twin brew this weekend, too. It was their Femme Fatale Brett beer, and it was pretty good. Not quite as wild and funky as I'd like, but still tasty! I love the gypsy brewing concept, too.
