So this week as a tip-of-the-hat to American Craft Beer “What We’re Drinking This Week” is Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale, Sweetwater Brewery’s most popular brew, a west-coast style pale ale, newly introduced into our neck of the woods this week from their Atlanta-based craft beer palace.
Though, admittedly, we are less a craft beer bar bar than a dive bar we have have always taken the opportunity to feature a modest selection of craft beers for our patrons.
So while we here at The Parrot realize that the old ways are the good ways and have been “avoiding progress since 1890” we are at the same time aware that our customers are nothing if not epicureans and astute observers of what’s going on in the ever-expanding craft-beer universe
Though our taps number a mere even-dozen we have kept Dogfish Head 60 Minute as a permanent resident for the past few years and seem to manage to always have a tap available for a variety of craft/specialty beers to rotate through (lately it’s been Angry Orchard Cider).
In the past we have hosted, with noticeable customer approval, craft beers such as Victory Hop Devil, Bell’s Oberan and Bell’s Two hearted to name just a few.
