Grunion Pale Ale – Ballast Point Brewing Company (USA)

‘Named after a local fish known for late frolics on the shore’, Grunion was the brainchild of a Ballast Point employee that won a home brewing contest. The result blends two new hop varieties that go together like fish and chips. Or perhaps salt and vinegar.

The world is like a big Grunion …..

Ballast Point can do no wrong in my book and Grunion lives up to its ‘hoppy’ billing.  Pale honey in colour, with warm honey tones on the nose, it’s the perfect accompaniment to Fat Freddy’s on a Friday. The bitterness of the hops cuts through the grease and the taste improves the warmer it gets releasing citrus rind and deep honey flavours. A real grower, I like it a lot.

Glass onions make way for Green Onions so check out this wild version of the Booker T and the MG’s classic ………..
