BERRY MERRY

My hometown beer. The only brewery on the mainland of Cape Cod, but thankfully they do a damn good job. This year’s holiday selection is the Berry Merry, an amber ale with cranberry, orange and cloves. I was skeptical of the cranberry thing at first, as I’m sure most people would be, but these folks did it up perfectly. It pours a very hazy orange-red, and you can smell the sourness of the fruits. A medium body, just the right amount of sweetness and a complementing bitterness make the Berry Merry such an on-point beer. Really dig the sharp tart finish. Thanks Cape Cod Beer for making it easy to stay local.
