Oy. Remember when I told you about the Dunedin sound and Flying Nun Records? Well, it’s the 30th anniversary of FNR, and to celebrate, they’ve teamed up with Epic Brewing Company to create a one-off commemorative ale.
That’s right, 30 Year Ale is an American-style pale ale that will comfort those who don’t like to stray to far from their usual lagers, but still has that magical something that will bring a fond twinkle to the eyes of seasoned beer drinkers.
This might be a stretch, but drinking this beer reminded me of listening to a band like The Clean – modeled after an American style, with a taste of the familiar and a hint of something a little different. Anyway…
Try this – Epic Beer and Flying Nun Records Present: 30 Year Ale
