The Beer Truth
An American Strong Ale, The Hairy Eyeball Ale packs a high ABV into an otherwise medium-bodied brew. It exemplifies this style of North American brewing with a deceptively smooth and satiating finish. A great accessory to aged gouda and crackers, this ale makes and breaks all the rules.
Do yourself a favor, pick one up, and tell them thebeertruth sent you.
