Received: Shock Top Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat

It had been awhile since I received a PR package of beer with the type of flair that those from Shock Top usually come in—but today I received a bottle of their latest offering coming out, Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat. I’ll drink and write about the beer itself in a later post, and just let the pictures of the unboxing speak for themselves. Well, one additional note: In case you were wondering, no, I can’t … Continue reading →

A six-pack of the latest seasonal of Anheuser-Busch’s Shock Top beer series arrived yesterday: Shock Top Honecrisp Apple Wheat. Yes, that is a wooden six-pack holder you see in those pictures there: kind of a cool way to package up the beer (though not as slick as the apocalypse beer kit I received previously). The beer itself is a blend of cider and the base Belgian-style wheat ale—cider is definitely on the rise—and is 5.2% … Continue reading →
