Well, it’s not a beer to be cracked open and slugged back after mowing the lawn or while watching the Big Game. Because of the higher alcohol content, it’s more akin to a nice bottle of wine to be shared — savoured with friends while poring over the news of the day, perhaps.
Flavour-wise it delivers plenty of pear and apple flavours commonly found in Pinot Grigio, with lovely malt and spice notes typically found in a saison and with an underlying (but subtle) hoppy component. Like a well-written but fiery op-ed, After Deadline is a style of beer that may not appeal to every palate, but can be appreciated for the obvious craftsmanship that went into it.
After Deadline is available now at the Nonsuch taproom and online store while supplies last.
