Too Tired to Type

Beer #134 Rye Pale Ale / Terrapin Beer Company, Athens, Georgia

This weekend was a lot of fun, but exhausting.  The weather cooperated, and I got to spend some quality time with both old friends and new friends.  I'm running on fumes right now, so I'll keep this brief and conserve what energy I have left.

Tonight's beer is the Rye Pale Ale from Terrapin, which I had on draft at Paramour.  It pours a dark gold with a white head that lingers and gives off a citrus and floral aroma.  The taste has flavors of mild hop bitterness and grain, but it doesn't overpower you.  There's a grapefruit note in there as well.  This beer is mellow, and quite enjoyable.  If you see this one in your travels, drink it.

Shiny, happy beers

Thing to Think About Today:
If we're thinking of Athens, Georgia, we're thinking about some of the music that's come out of that town.  Most notably, R.E.M.  One of the most important bands in the late 80's and early 90's, they recently broke up. Which sucks, because they're a great band.  We caught them live during their last tour, and had a blast.  Just a great show.  R.E.M. made an appearance in this space earlier (Pop Song 89 for our 89th beer), but nothing says we can't break out another example.  Take it away.....
