BeerSox Beer of the Week 22 March 29, 2012

Hi there!

Todays BeerSox Beer of the Week is brought to you by Melissa Wilson of my own little dust-pile.

Saint Arnold Brewery
Spring Bock

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?

Thanks Melissa!

BeerSox Beer of the Week 16 December 22, 2011

I have the afternoon off, so I came down to the tour at Saint Arnold! One of my favorite beer combinations is Weedwacker and Elissa IPA. I call it a BananaBoat!

IPA plus a bit of banana esters from the yeast in weedwacker!

BeerSox Beer of the Week 1 June 4, 2011

Ahh, at the end of a long work week (well, not thaaaat long, it started in Mexico and was effectively 3 days long), it’s nice to celebrate with a crisp, refreshing beer.

This is a bit later than it will usually be, but each Friday, I plan on featuring the BeerSox Beer of the Week. I realize that some weeks, I may not try a new beer to share with you, so I invite you to email me your own reviews and/or introductions. The only caveat being that your entry must include a photo of said beer with your BeerSox on it. When I need a post, I will update with guest entries!

So, on to today yesterday’s BeerSox Beer of the Week:

Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower



It was one of the first Saint Arnold beers that I tried and it began what has come to be a love of that great local brewery and their beers. Fancy Lawnmower is a german style kolsh (I need to figure out the umlaut(sp?)). Nice, light, refreshing, but still with great flavor. It came about because the owner had always kept a cruddy macrobrew in his fridge for after he miwed his lawn, his ‘lawnmower beer’, but eventually realized that there’s no reason to drink cruddy beer when he could make a great beer that’s still refreshing. Hence FANCY lawnmower beer.
