I went to the store to grab a beer for tonight. Usually I'm just a label slut and grab whichever one catches my eye. Tonight it was a different reason that led me to my decision. I made a video to explain because I thought it would be better represented that way.
So yeah... it's a gluten free beer with a giant government warning on it saying it probably contains gluten. Couldn't pass it up.
Beer 1 - 5:51PM
First sip... tastes a lot lighter than your normal IPA. Definitely not as much body to it. Maybe that's because its gluten free (but not really). Still a good taste though. The first flavor that hits you is the bitterness, which I think is the hops. Then you get a tiny bit of fruit flavor. At the end you are left with a foamy mouth. I feel like there's gotta be a real term for that. Certain beers just get like foamy at the end, like a soap, and they leave a big residue in your mouth. If I was outside right now I would be spitting a lot post beer consumption.
Gonna go cook myself some dinner.
Beer 2 - 7:49PM
Beer 3 - 8:11PM
This may not be a common thing that happens to people...but... there are some mouthwashes or toothpastes out there that, when I use them, my mouth becomes a saliva factory. Constant build up of spit on my tongue and back of the throat. That's what this beer is doing to me. So so foamy.
It's 6.7% alcohol. The drink-ability is through the roof. Feel like I'm drinking a light beer.
Beer 4 - 8:50PM
This beer is Brewed by Widmer Brothers Brewing company. They make the Hefeweizen that everyone loves. I went to there website and looked around but there isn't much about this beer on there. Probably because it was a total failure and the surgeon general outed them to the masses.
I feel like the history of this beer went something like this.
The owners son, a man who doesn't enjoy beer but still is part of the business because blood is thicker then water around his parts, sat at the round table meeting one day and said, "you know what Pa, my wife is a celiac and I think it would be nice if we made a gluten free beer so she could enjoy it."
The father, a rusty old brewer, born on a bar stool, said, "UH WHAT?! A sheliac? What the hell is that? What's gluten?" He realized he didn't want to hear the answer to those questions so he just told his failure son sure, go ahead.
Oh my god what am I typing? Get me my next beer please.
Beer 5 - 10:01PM
The Widmer Brewery website has a video titled How to Pour A Widmer Brother Hefeweizen. I'm not drinking Hefeweizen but I made an my own instructional video, which is loosely based off their instructional video.
Beer 6 - 10:42PM
Been over four hours since I cracked the first beer but I wont lie, I'm feeling pretty good. Good enough to record that last video, edit it, post it, know that I shouldn't post it because most people will watch it and get sad for me, "Did you see what Jimmy has been up to? He's drinking alone in his room making awkwardly quiet videos, wearing a two frogs shirt and having terrible hair," I thought about all that and still went through with posting it so yeah I'm feeling good.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
