|just chillin with a brew...|
Anyways, sorry about that. Sometimes I go on strange journeys. Yes Calgary is the home of Big Rock. It is also home to some killer riding with K-country and various other hotspots being a stones throw away from this great city. Now before I go on another tangent and start shoving my nose up Calgary`s ass just cause it has great riding, I will try to stick to the task at hand. 1984 was the year Big Rock was formed by a man named Ed Mcnally. A strike at Molson`s and Labatts dramatically helped Big Rock in 1986 and is now a big proud Alberta beer.
Grasshopper was made in 1994 when Ed was driving through our province and decided to make a wheat ale. Why not? Alberta has some of the best wheat in the world. I opened a bottle, sniffed, then poured it into my trusty mug. What did I find? A very nice looking ale, the colour of Albertan wheat was dominant in this ale, yes I had tears of pride running down my cheeks. The taste was good. There were no dominant flavours that stood out in this one. What else can I say? This is a good easy drinking beer that I would probably not write home to tell my wife about, but she say`s I`m bad at communicating.....
This beer gets 3 suds out of 5
