Zombie or Baby?

This week’s post has three steps to it… ready?

1) Watch video with sound and all the way to the end

2) Fill out poll

3) Read beer review

4) Make out with the first person you see to your left

(One of the four is optional, so if I don’t get many polls filled out I get it)

If you too have been eaten by a zombie, then this week’s beer should be just up your flesh-ridden alley.

Dead-Guy Ale

Brewed by Rogue Ales Newport, Oregon

Style Maibock

ABV 6.50%

Rogue makes some pretty spectacular creations both inside (the beer) and literally the bottle itself. Their demonic, skeletal branding is either a result of brilliant marketing, or an actual depiction of what one will look like should they keep drinking their beers. I’m hoping for the first but I’d settle for the second. (Wait a second…)

Dead Guy Ale is a bready, malty ale that pours nice and goes down smooth. Great beer for spring when you don’t necessarily want a lager, but you don’t want anything too strong either.

Fun Fact: According to beeradvocate.com, the Maibock style of beer tends to be lighter in color than other Bock beers and often has a significant hop character with a noticeable alcohol around the same as a traditional Bock.

Hold on a quick second here – What the heck is a bock? And don’t tell me it’s a type of deer.

Well, it’s basically a stronger lager with robust malt character. Ok…now I’ve got it. Please continue the beer review… Actually that’s all I have.

Word from the north pole was that Blitzen had several bocks that stormy Christmas Eve and was well over the legal limit for carrying sleighs
