Brew Credit Due

Sunday, we went to a fundraiser at the New Belgium Brewery, which we can reach from home almost exclusively via the northside bike paths. I reflected on how critical I've been of their new beers, and how remiss I've been in not mentioning that I've been enjoying the NB Mothership Wit [Beer Advocate] all summer long. There's a lot of good people working hard at New Belgium, and the company itself is a good citizen -- so it's great to be able to rave about one of their beer again. I've never been a fan of "Sunshine Wheat", and always longed for something more like Hoegaarden. This witbier delivers that same crispy tartness and spice. A little lighter than the original maybe, but that's not so bad in the heat of the summer, and doesn't impair my ability to do yard work.
