It seems it's going to be a bit colder this week than the past two, so what better way to stay warm through the last gasps of winter than through a big, delicious beer?

This week, we're featuring Dark Horse's Scotty Karate, a Scotch ale that is among the best out there. You're asking yourself "What the hell kind of name is Scotty Karate?" right now. I know. Well, allow the fine folks at Dark Horse Brewing to explain just that:

He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced.

 

And that's why I love craft breweries so much. No focus groups. No multi-million dollar ad campaign to trick you into buying a "lifestyle" or whatever. Just well-made beer named after weirdos who hang out at the brewery. Get some for half price this week at Half Time and have a great week.
