Amazing Clubs Beer of the Month Club once again included 4 different types of beer from 2 different breweries.
The first brewery, Pennsylvania Brewing Company in Pittsburgh, included 2 German-style beers: Penn Gold and Penn Weizen. Penn Gold is light-colored and Penn Weizen is a bit heavier with a tangy clove flavor, typical of a weizen style beer. I really enjoyed the Penn Weizen. I wasn’t as crazy about the Penn Gold.
The second brewery, Mercury Brewing Company in Ipswich, Massachusetts, offered a Stone Cat ESB (Extra Special Bitter) and Stone Cat Blonde Ale. I didnt’ care for the Stone Cat ESB at all. Offered a bottle to a friend, and he didn’t go back for a second. Asked another friend to try the third and final bottle, and he didn’t care for it either. Thought it was just me – perhaps not liking the bitterness – but 3 for 3 said “no go.” Oh well, we enjoyed the Blonde Ale.
The beer arrived in sturdy packaging and all bottles arrived perfectly in tact.
And from the 1-page flyer, we learned that Mercury Brewing Company produces 47 different beers as well as 19 soft drinks. And Penn Brewery is both a brewery and restaurant. They use only the 4 classic ingredients to ensure their beer complies with the German beer purity law: malted barley, hops, water, and yeast.
