Don’t Fear the Dark Beer

People have their preferences, sure, I get it. Some people only drink white wine, others only drink red. Some people swear by light beer – whereas if the only beer available is a domestic light beer, I’ll have water. You’re welcome to your preference.

But if you are adventurous and looking for a new beer to whet your whistle, here’s one I’ve been enjoying – Ugly Pug by Rahr & Sons Brewery. It’s a black beer, but don’t let that frighten you. It’s not particularly bitter or dense – what you might think when you see a black beer. It’s not even particularly heavy. It’s medium-bodied with gentle flavors of coffee and dark chocolate.

We tried it with pizza during the Superbowl. We had it with chicken and potatoes one night. I drank one on the patio when the temperature was an unseasonable 80 in February. Find one and give it a try – see if you don’t change your mind about black beer!
