#602 Lovecraft Honey Ale - Narragansett Brewing Company

ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Dead, yet dreaming...covers Narragansett Brewing Company properly, a very old brewery who's name has been resurrected. Returning from the dead I would have expected a beer bearing the name and likeness of H.P Lovecraft to be brutally dark with an ABV designed to drive a man insane. Instead we see a Honey Ale with respectable 7%. With 72 IBUs it ranks higher than most Narragansett beers, most of which fall on the lower end of that scale. 

Hi neighbor
It worked well to pair this beer with the latest Grimm episode. The "herbal hop crescendo" described by Narragansett helped me sympathize with the bunny wesen and I can imagine HPL would have enjoyed the transformation of Juliette into a Hexenbiest.

Who wouldn't want to have a beer with this guy?
