Take Me Out to the Ballgame....

Beer #139 Big Daddy IPA / Speakeasy Ales and Lagers, San Francisco, CA

Headed to Citizens Bank Park for the first time in this young baseball season to catch a game in person.  Therefore, you get the short and sweet version today.

The Big Daddy IPA is up to bat (see what I did there?), and this beer from Speakeasy pours an amber color with a fluffy white head.  The aroma gives off notes of malt and biscuit, with some citrus in there.  The taste is quite nice - earthy, with a dry hop bitterness.  Probably not as much citrus as I would expect, but they do have some malt sweetness in there.  In all, well worth your effort.  This brewery has been churning out beers since 1997 in San Fran's Bayview section.

Speaking of San Fran, the ballpark has been carrying Anchor Steam the past few seasons - as well as other local craft brews from Victory and Philadelphia Brewing.  Hopefully that trend continues.  If you're going to charge me $43 for a beer, it better at least be a good one.

Thing to Think About Today:
If we're thinking baseball, let's just spend a moment thinking about the best baseball movie ever.  Oh yes, it's time for Major League.  Easily one of the most quotable movies of all time, which always comes in handy at baseball games.  We wear caps and sleeves at this level, son.....
