Two legends—both named John—meet in the middle to create a hybrid ale of their very own designs. What we received out of their cumulative efforts was Dead Guy Ale. If you’re into whiskey (and who isn’t?) you’ll get some familiarities in the texture and flavors of your favorite middle-shelf whiskey, all in an inexpensive, delicious package.
Avid testers agree that it’s sourer than it is sweet; I say it smacks you in the taste buds and says “Wake up; this is real beer.” It’s something you can enjoy on tap at the local pub. It accompanies spicy foods exceptionally well, so if you sit by with a basket of hot wings at the bar, you’re sure to be in for one hell of an evening.
