Liver Sacrifice Vol. 1

Because I love our readers, I am willing to consume new products so you don't have to. Sometimes I do this on purpose. Other times, I'm just assed out. This is one of those times...

While on the hunt for some Boulevard Imperial Stout, I came across a local beer I had yet to partake of...Weston Brewing Leapin' Leprechaun Ale. They market it as the St Patty's Day Brew. Apparently that's the only marketing they were willing to do as they make no mention of it on their website or include any information regarding alcohol content or poison control contact numbers on the packaging or bottle.

I'm not even sure how to characterize this beer for you. The scent is something like burnt sugar. The taste, as my wife said, "It's like water with a hint of piss." I'm not used to drinking urine like she is, so I can't fully backup that statement, but I am glad that the beer is incredibly light and good for chugging. I only have two left from the sixer and will likely save them for the next BYOB party I go to and leave them in the fridge. BYOB parties are second only to cash bars at weddings in d-bag hosting practices.

Nice glass!

Like yourself, I purchased a six pack of this water dressed up to look like ale, brazenly marketing itself (via the name and packaging) to alcoholic irishmen like myself!

DAMN BASTARDS.

I've given up on the Weston Brewing Co. Never had anything that could even be considered average from them. I'm certainly not going to try this crap. I don't shit like this.

the sad thing is that I love O'Malley's Pub. I have tons of great memories from the place. And the Irish Fest is world class.
