Six Beers Deep – Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale


This week we take a little detour from the normal offerings, where I dive into the the world of beers that are flavored so that they don’t taste like beer. Let’s take a look at:

Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale

Small Town Brewery

ABV: 5.9%

One: So as I sip on this beer, I think about how I could go on about the fruity, even grassy notes that live within this beverage if it weren’t so overwhelmingly blanketed by the amount of godawful sugary sweetness that drowns out every other flavor (save ginger). Somebody check my insulin levels. Wait, let’s not. That might convince me to stop.

Two: I had a feeling this would happen, which is why I brought bourbon. I apologize in advance.

Three: Ok, that was a bit better, but i think this might be taintting my review. Who knows, this ay be why tehy invented this thing cuz they’re all lik e”YO! this thing is so swewet that i t can only be a mixer. I hope some gu y reviews it by making mixed drink s cuz not a person with a soul taht isn’t a ginger should drink like six of these ok?” I think that’s how theyre board meeting went, cuz they use too much sugar.

Four: oh man this is rough. my mouth feelsl iek that rive in charliek and the chocolate factory, adn i have a small german boy stuck in my throate. wait, that doesn’t sound right. Tahnks for getting me through this , bourbong.

Five. Ok, so oenn thing we shouldn’t use this fro, is when kids get carsick. It will dfintiely not settle their stomach, in fact it is having the opppoipitne eefect on mine. I should neither drive, no be driven.

Six: I swear, next month i’m just going to do pabst and theere won’t be a single spelling error cuz i’m a pro at this and a beer like that ewont have me experienceing a drunken stopoir and a sugar crashe. I hate this beer ale thingy ginger stuff. Next time, more bourbon.
