Lean or Fat by Revelry Brewing Co.
English Pale Mild Ale, 4% ABV
This summer sipper was specially made for Revelry’s John Lewis Barbecue Series, and it instantly became a hit. The light ABV allowed for easy sipping while awaiting brisket in the sweltering heat. That said, it imparts a slightly salty taste. The beer took home the gold in the English Ale category at the U.S. Open Beer Championship this summer.
All Chinook Pale Ale by Coast Brewing Co.
American Pale Ale, 6.5% ABV
A pop of citrus hops will hit you before you even take a sip of this light amber beer. It produces a white head of foam and gives off a bit of spiciness with a caramel finish.
