Beer To Pick Up This Weekend: Workman Common Lager
Ok, I know it's not the weekend. And to be honest....these pictures were taken yesterday. In no part of the world is Wednesday considered the weekend. But my weekend starts early this week (I'm off tomorrow, booyah!). And it's been a bit of a sad week. If you wanted to start your weekend early, I think the world will understand.
I picked this beer up randomly about a month ago. I'm not a big lager person. I mean - I'll drink a lager, don't get me wrong! I'll drink a Bud Light. Or a Yuengling. Not a huge Boston Lager person (everyone is collectively scoffing at me). But something made me pick up a 6-pack of this Workman Common Lager by Blue Pants Brewery. I think it was the packaging (another collective scoff). What can I say? I'm an artist, I like cute packaging (though that guy needs to be careful - drinking while using a chain saw! For shame!)
What a surprise this beer turned out to be! What a very un-lager-y lager (un-lager-y?). It has a great bite on the end and a really pleasing piney-ness. It's a bit like.....dare I say....an IPA? I think we all know how I feel about IPA's.
I'd love to know what other people think of this beer. Especially people that love lagers. Too piney? Or perfectly piney?
Give it a try and let me know how you feel about it! Have a great weekend! I've officially decided today is the weekend. We deserve it.
