We went to my brother's for our Fourth of July Celebration; we can always count on interesting beverages as part of the menu. This time it was Magic Hat #9-(I am going to use the commercial description for this this beer:)
"A Beer Cloaked in Secrecy; An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A beer brewed clandestinely and given a name whose meaning is never revealed. Why #9? Why, indeed. A sort of dry, crisp, fruity, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast."
Need I say more?
The menu consisted of out-of-this-world grilled turkey burgers, pasta salad and spicy italian sausage cooked in beer.
One of the highlights of the evening was playing with their sweet Westie, Maggie. While the fireworks were the big attraction for the evening, it was nice to kick back and enjoy watching the kids play, and spend time with our family. This is how a Fourth of Celebration is meant to be!
