Hi fellow Hiveians,

Today I'm here with a beer style I've never had before! American pale ale!

Beer Saturday: American Pale Ale

When I was at the store the other day, I was on the hunt for a beer. I hadn't drank any for about a month and I wanted to have one to decompress a little bit. Sometimes you just need that to kick off some of the bullshit of life. I was browsing the cooler and found a local beer but of a style I had never heard of nor had before. An American pale ale! It's usually India Pale Ale so I was instantly intrigued.

Combine the fact that it was a local Vermont brewery I was sold on it. I always love to support the smaller breweries and it seems they are getting a lot of support from Americans right now which is good, but also bad because of increased alcohol consumption? lol

In any case though, they had quite a few good hops in this one! I don't know what the differences are between these, nor the names but it was good to see some different ones.

The beer in all was a delicious version of an IPA that went down smooth, tasted great and had the right amount of foam.

Checking with my other beer buddy @sagesigma to see if he's ever had an American Pale Ale before. I certainly enjoyed it and know that I will be on the look out for more of this style if I can find them!

Oh yes, a favorite for me, lol. Although I really will drink anything for the most part as long as it has some flavor for beer. If you ever get out this way, I am definitely taking you to Toppling in Iowa to try some super flavorful pale ales...it might even motivate @joetunex @captainquack22 and @ablaze to head over to the cornfields of Iowa, too

Never been to Iowa before but I think it would be a lot of fun! It's funny, I've drank a lot of different types of beers but this was the first I heard of an APA. It's always IPA for me lol.

Would be fun to get drunk and shoot at stuff in corn fields lol get the real redneck experience!

it's pretty wild there...I want to say it's probably at least $100 mill brewery. Good food, great beer, kids from Luther College working, state of the art equipment...and in the middle of epic cornfields. I took my dad and brother there a few years ago, and they were fans. Plus, there is a great pizza place only 20 mins away that overlooks the Mississippi River valley -

Hey, cheers. This beer looks just fabulous. And local is always a better choice!

That reminds me I need to check the fridge. I don't think there are any APAs. Ipas for sure, lagers too, but APAs ... nope :)

Thanks, it was delicious! It was my first APA for sure. I'm more of an IPA guy myself but do enjoy a lager or something a little heavier once in a while. My colleague makes fun of me a little but because he's a coffee stout kinda guy. That's a little too dank for my taste buds lol.

Got 2 more of my APA's waiting for me, might crack one or two tomorrow night!

Mmm, dry hopped, and surely the citra hop, that's a combination that I really like! I didn't tasted this one yet, but I hope it tasted well! But... one thing, you talk about a small brewery. Over here in Belgium I don't know any small brewery that can present the beers in cans... I also own a small brewery, but we work with small an bigger bottles, and also 20L barrels. Cheers!

Very cool! Cans are pretty common but I know over in Europe they use a lot of bottles more, probably because it's cheaper to do that than get aluminum lol makes sense! I prefer beer out of a bottle or a keg myself but don't get too picky to turn it down if I see a good one in cans.

My brother made some of his own beer for a while and always used bottles. I'm sure it's a lot easier than trying to press the top of a can on and sealing it. Sounds like a real pain in the ass!

I do enjoy some nice Belgian style things, like wheat beers and waffles. Now I'm hungry for both lol
