Shmaltz Brewing Co. Sword Swallower

(Always drink responsibly.  Seek help when alcohol affects your life and the lives of those around you.  For readers of a legal drinking age.)

I’ll admit, I picked this one from our local Safeway because it’s an IPA with intriguing label artwork.  There were a couple of Coney Island Craft Lagers from Shmaltz Brewing Company available, but my preference is always IPA so I had to try theirs, which has 7.2% alcohol by volume.  The Sword Swallower is justly named: a little stinging on first taste, but after it goes down the burn dissipates and then the swallow is over.  It pairs well with the garlic Parmesan truffle fries Zach just made for Superbowl Sunday (although I’m watching the Puppy Bowl).
