Todays BeerSox Beer of the Week is brought to you by Melissa Wilson of my own little dust-pile.
You know, I DO drink a wide variety of beers, but for some reason most of my BeerSox photos end up being of Saint Arnold beers. And even though Houston doesn’t usually get what I would call spring temperatures this time of year, Saint Arnold Spring Bock helps me pretend. It’s probably one of the most balanced beers I’ve ever had: not too heavy and not too light; slight fruit flavor up front with a crisp, almost dry finish. For me it’s the beer equivalent of a good dry white wine. Good for crawfish boils, good for sitting down to a roast chicken, or just good to enjoy after so many months of dark, winter ales. And really, isn’t the transition from dark to light what spring is about?
