  Beer:  G’Knignt Brewery:  Oskar Blues Style:  Imperial Red(8.5%ABV) Serving:  Pint glass or Snifter (my suggestion) @ 40-45 degrees General description and suggestion:  This beer has substantial malt sweetness; you will probably taste a slight caramel character that comes from the type of grain used in brewing the beer.

food.pairing: Union Jack

General description and suggestion: Pair  an American IPA with a spicy corn salsa.  American IPA’s  have a more pronounced bitterness, citrus hop aroma and higher alcohol than their English IPA cousins. That means this is a great beer for hop heads and spice (as in hot) heads.  The hops and the carbonation can intensify the [&hellip[ READ MORE ]
