…Arch Dinner Jacket O’Red IPA

I dare you to find me a more hoser beer, bro! Brewed by Arch up in Newmarket, the Dinner Jacket is pretty much their signature beer–you’ll find it all over their website. And this ain’t yer grandpappy’s IPA, either, coming in strong at 6.3% with plenty of hops to go around.

You can find this one at a few local LCBO’s, but it’s kind of a funny story how I first heard about it. Y’see, back when the Ottawa REDBLACKS first joined the CFL, I asked the internet which beer I should be drinking whenever they lose to the Stamps. Somebody came up with this one, and it makes perfect sense. Not only does it have the team’s colours, but football fans in Ottawa like to roleplay as lumberjacks, so while they may not wear flannel to dinner, they definitely wear it to the games.

And yes, I’m even more bitter than a strong red IPA that the Stamps blew the Grey Cup in overtime to Ottawa this year!!!
