Beer Wednesday! IPAs For Everybody!

For this week’s Beer Wednesday, I had Brew Free or Die IPA, brewed by 21st Amendment Brewery, in San Francisco, CA. This IPA is hoppy and bitter, with a well filled head,and a great golden amber color.

Great Artwork on all of 21st Amendment’s cans.

And great color on the beer coming from inside the can.

BFoD comes canned, and not bottled, and carries a 7.0 ABV. and was fresh and bright right out of the can. Chances are, 21st cans their beer for a few reasons. 1: it’s often cheaper than bottling beer, and 2: it always keeps beer fresher than bottles, because light can’t get through the can, the way it can get through even the darkest brown bottle, and corrode the flavor of the beer.

Like most IPAs, Brew Free or Die is a beer that bites back, but not in a super mean way. Crisp, and cold, with the hit of citrus that is co often found in IPAs, BFoD was refreshing and took the edge off of the spice in my sister-in-law’s vegan gumbo and my vegan meat pies (look here if you don’t know what I’m talking about.)

The head faded a bit more quickly that I would have liked, but overall, it was a delicious brew. If you don’t like IPAs and the bitterness that they carry, then I would avoid it, but, if you like IPAs and the grapefruit-like flavors that often accompany them, then 21 Amendment Brewery’s Brew Free of Die is an IPA that is completely worth it. I found this particular can at Whole Foods in Paramus, NJ, but their website will show you where you can go to find it near you.
