Typical Colorado…always teasing us with the warm spring weather but then drastically turning to windy, frigid weather (maybe even snow today!). I have lived here too long to fall for its tricks though…just because it is now April and we have had weeks of warm weather does not mean that the cold weather has really gone away. Well, it gives me a reason to bring the scarves out again…oh how I love scarf season. Even on a day like today I appreciate a beer.
Mirror Pond Pale Ale by The Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon is one of my favorite beers. This is the beer you can drink throughout the week…the Sunday through Saturday beer :) It doesn’t require a specific mood and can be enjoyed multiple times without becoming dull. When I’m lacking the desire to try a new beer and just want a beer to relish after work….Mirror Pond is the number one choice…my go-to beer. It is hoppy enough to give the beer a complex flavor but has a smooth finish making it not too overwhelming. Even someone that does not normally like hoppy beers might find Mirror Pond to be the perfect combination :)
