Happy Hour: Fireman's Brew

Happy Hour: Fireman's Brew

This Father's Day, why not surprise dad with a flight of beers? Then have an impromptu tasting where you both enjoy the beers together. Be sure to select a beer that your dad has never tasted.

Recently, I did just this with my father. He's a retired fire chief, so when I heard of Fireman's Brew, a line of microbrewed beers created by two Los Angeles firefighters, I knew it would be perfect for a tasting. There are three beers to the collection: a blonde, brewnette, and redhead. The blonde is an easy drinking, light, pilsner style-lager that's crisp and refreshing; it really quenches on a hot day. The brewnette is a darker dopplebock with a heady fragrance and strong hoppy flavor. The red is an amber ale with a rich, bold, smooth flavor without any bitterness. It's the most distinct tasting and would be a nice complement to smoky barbecue.

Overall we enjoyed all three, but our favorite was the delightful blonde. What brewskies do you and your dad sip together?
