I don’t usually just toss around links on the blog, but if you’re a beer drinker, this one is worth a look. The New York Times spirit writer Eric Asimov has an article in this week’s Food section about American style pale ales. It not only runs through their top ten, but it gives a nice overview of the use (and perhaps, depending on your position, misuse) of hops in American pale ales. It also helps define what exactly and American pale ale is.
It’s a short and worthwhile read. And even better, the top American pale ale, in their humble opinion, comes from MD’s very own Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick!! Check it out via the link below.
