Top Ten Literary BeersPosted: June 7, 2013
It’s Friday! Time to kick back with a summer read, dig your toes into the sand, and crack open one of these beauties. Who said beers couldn’t be high-brow?
White Whale Ale
Yes, it is actually made with pages ripped from the seams of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.
Le Petit Prince (or The Little Prince)
Lament on love and loss, and forget about that self-obsessed rose already.
The Raven Special Lager
I actually had this once. Nevermore, nevermore.
Ginger in the Rye
I’m afraid one does actually have to grow up before enjoying this The Catcher in the Rye inspired beverage.
The Lost Abbey Inferno Ale
The devil’s potion. Literally.
Moloko Milk Stout
“Oh, bliss, bliss and heaven. I lay all nagoy to the ceiling, my gulliver on my rookers on the pillow, glazzies closed, rot open in bliss, slooshying the sluice of lovely sounds. Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh,” said the man who drank the six-pack.
Oscar Wilde Mild
Shouldn’t this be “Oscar Wilde… Mild?” Beware, this beer is laced with witty wordplay.
For when you wish to be away with the fairies.
Hops of Wrath
*Swig, swirl*… I detect notes of dust and disappointment.
And to top things off, a good Christmas ale!
Bridgeport’s Ebenezer Ale
Enjoy! And as always, read responsibly.
