20 BEERS BETTER THAN CORONA: 11. SeaQuench Ale

Dogfish Head might be one of the best craft breweries whose beers I’ve never, ever seen in Canada. And with Trump ‘n Trudeau shutting down all non-essential travel between our two countries, it looks like I won’t be making a south-of-the-border beer run anytime soon. So my chances of drinking this beer anytime before summertime seem pretty slim…

11. SeaQuench Ale

This light, citrusy beer is a cross between a kolsch, a gose and a Berlinerweiss, which makes it pretty much the perfect summer slammer. I had a few of these on the rooftop patio at Blake Shelton’s bar in Nashville a couple years back — there’s no tears in this beer, bro!!!

BEERS OF BALTIMORE

OK, so here’s the deal. Up in Canada, we don’t get a lot of the craft beers you’ll see in the States. Especially when you live in a province where the government’s in cahoots with a couple ne plus macro breweries to control beer prices and distribution.

Anyways, suffice to say that when I head down south of the border, I ain’t drinkin’ Bud Light. Here’s some of the craft beers I had in Baltimore:

DOGFISH HEAD 60 MINUTE IPA: This “East Coast” IPA was a lot smoother than what I’d expect from a beer with those three letters at the end. And at 6%, it kinda sneaks up on ya!

FLYING DOG DOGGIE STYLE PALE ALE: You gotta love the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas artwork on the label! This beer was a little more citrusy than I thought it would be, but still left a bitter beer aftertaste.

ANNABEL LEE WHITE: Happy Hour at Phillips Seafood means 4-dollar draft beers—and that includes all draft beers, bro! I went with this one, a light, citrusy brew that tastes pretty much the same as Unibroue’s Blanche de Chambly.

NATIONAL BOHEMIAN AKA NATTY BOH: Baltimore’s answer to PBR: it’s cheap, light and it (sorta) gets the job done. Plus it comes in a Baltimore Ravens purple can!!!
