If you live around Philadelphia, tonight was one of those rare summer nights in late July and August when there was no humidity and the evening was actually perfect for sitting outside with your neighbors and sharing a brew. As the sun set and a refreshing breeze blew in, I cracked open a Kona Big Wave – a golden ale that had a nice touch of the tropics – courtesy of the hops.
As more neighbors came outside to enjoy the rare weather, an impromptu block party began, and I moved on to an Evolution Lot No. 3 IPA, which also has an outstanding tropical fruit aroma perfect for the evening. But of course, as the evening progressed our hometown hero, Dirt Wolf from Victory, came prowling out of the darkness.
Evenings like this should not be overlooked. As I’ve said before, while we celebrate beer in and of itself, when we share it in the perfect conditions with others, beer reaches it’s full potential.
