The Shmaltz Sweet 16 has been out a few weeks now and I’ve been able to acquire said beer. If I was more serious about my self-given title of Beer Blogger–and life in general–I’d call this a review. Instead, I think semi-drunken-interweb-blog-ramble-thingy will suffice.
According to my astrology chart this is the 16th in their anniversary series. As much as it pains me, I’ll leave aside the Sweet Sixteen jokes and just tell you that like the last four or five Jewbelations I’ve had, this is worth the time, effort, and injury of repeatedly putting it in the lowest hole in your head. If this isn’t your mouth hole, adjust accordingly (and tell me all about it or post to Craigslist missed mouth hole connections and I’ll surely find it).
What makes this special? How about 16 malts and 16 hops in 16 additions? Did I mention it is like sucking the sweet malt nectar from a nubile nymph’s nipple? Of course I didn’t. Because I’m a gentleman. That’s why.
The long of the short (or however it goes) is that you should get this if/while you can. I doubt you’ll be disappointed. Unless you don’t like good things. Which, while it would explain why you read this blog, isn’t a way to live your life.
