Beers and a Ballgame

Time Traveler Strawberry Shandy Picmonkey

 

By Dan Clarke

May 2, 2016 - A couple of beers needed analysis. But the Giants game was to be televised on Saturday afternoon. Fortunately I can multi-task in cases like this.

Both beers were somewhat unusual and brewed with the summer drinker in mind. One of them was from Deschutes, a reliable producer in Bend, Oregon. The other was from The Traveler Beer Co., a subsidiary of Boston Beer Co. (Sam Adams, et al) located in Burlington, Vermont.
