what I think about this beer in 2012, check here. But you should totally read the review below first.
Last night around 9 pm, I was minding my own business, watching the Phillies and drinking a much-deserved second, OK fifth, beer. That's when I stumbled into this phenomenon known on Twitter simply as #WineParty.
Not knowing anyone and being super shy, I asked host Kit from the Blogging Dangerously blog what I was supposed to do. Luckily, she gave me some instructions that I could handle: stalk the conversations for something interesting and with potential.
At some point I learned one of the rules at the party was that no bras are allowed, which suited me just fine. And when I realized that the party was made up almost exclusively of hot moms, jackpot!
If you are not stimulated by my recollection of the party, you can just show up yourself next week and make your own conversation. Perhaps I'll see you there, fashionably late to the weekly 9 pm Friday night start. And checking this morning, the wine party went into the wee hours of the morning. Great times! Now, on to the boring beer review part...
Today I'm drinking Shiner Ruby Redbird brewed by Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. "The Perfect Summer Beer" is brewed with Texas Ruby Red grapefruit juice and ginger. There is a little story on the back covering expectations headlined with "Serve Ice Cold On Hot Days".
A little grain with noticeable lemon and grapefruit citrus aroma, not too strong. Tart yet sweet grapefruit flavors start things off. Very dry. Very, very dry. Oh, and surprisingly flat and lacking much carbonation. Next, flat ginger ale hits your palate, with a not-so-powerful ginger component. Then there are no other flavors, just a tingle on the palate and more dryness. You know it's beer but that's it. Refreshment-wise, was OK. There are many better beers including half a dozen Shiners.
