On a recent trip to the West of England, the intertwit team popped into the Boater pub in Bath where we found May 2017’s Beer of The Month!
Electric Bear Brewing Company – Werrrd! American Pale Ale 4.2%
Now we know what you’re thinking. The pump clip. In the 1980’s or 90’s a marketing executive might have thought that the combination of ghetto blaster, skateboard, sunglasses and baseball cap was an accurate representation of modern “yoof”. We’re not sure whether it was then when we were “younger” and we definitely don’t know now that we’re …errrrm more mature. Still pump clip aside this is definitely a grown up and modern pint.
Made with all the modern hops that we like such as mosaic and citra as well as the more elusive centennial, Werrrd (difficult to spell with 3 “r’s) is an excellently and eminently drinkable beer. Soft, fruity and well rounded you could put a fair few of these away in what would be an enjoyable session.
This is the first time we’ve had any beers from the Bath-based Electric Bear and we’d like to try some more! Looking at their website they it’s looks as if it’s been a bit of a labour of love to become established so more power to them!
