When it comes to picking a good beer, there are only three factors to consider: taste, alcohol content, and price. I'm kidding, just buy the shit with the coolest bottle design. And now BevLink and Fish Brewing have teamed up to take advantage of the fact that people really will do that (same goes for wine) with this series of 10% ABV Hobbit themed beers. The lineup, while I go grab a six-pack of Sierra Nevada to drink at my desk until I sneak out early to go get a manicure and cocktails with my girls:
Gollum Precious Pils: A strong Imperial Pils, with flavors as smooth and crafty as Gollum himself. Like the ring which Gollum pursued for the rest of his life, his "precious" pils, if your quest leads you to it, could extend your life too! (at least we'd like to think so) It will, at a minimum, make your journey a little more enjoyable!
Bolg Belgian Tripel: An Orc chieftain who ruled for 150 years, Bolg would drink his grog of choice and no one would tell him otherwise - a flavorful strong Belgian Tripel. Some said it refined an otherwise gruesome character.
Smaug Stout: Smaug Stout is styled after a classic Russian Imperial Stout, but with a subtle hint of Habanero chilis to remind you of the fire and danger awaiting you in your journey to The Lonely Mountain. Pronounced notes of Coffee and Chocolate balanced with Northwest Hops and a touch of heat produce an exceptional imperial stout, a worthy reward for your hard-fought journey.
*cracking beer* Now, where were we? "You said you were going to get a manicure and cocktails with your girls." Heck yeah, manis and martinis! I never miss a girl's night. "Are you being serious?" No, I will be face down at a dive-bar by 6PM, alone. So, so alone. So alone.
Hit the jump for the other two labels.
Thanks to Brad H, who is more than a little upset there is no Legolas Lager or Merry & Pippin Sparkling Cider.
