SweetWater Grass Monkey
Why Kirk Enjoys this Beer….
“Grass Monkey…..that funky monkey! C’mon you know you did it too! When you see a beer name and it makes you sing you gotta give it a whirl, right? Sweet Water brewing in Atlanta continues to impress. 420 is a staple in my fridge and I always enjoy their limited release seasonal offerings. Their Spring release Grass monkey is a wonderfully built beer, the pour produces a beautiful golden color that is quickly followed by the wonderful aroma of hops and citrus. The flavor in this beer is tremendous, a slight citrus hop flavor up front that is backed up with a malty wheat punch and finishes with a fresh lemongrass flavor that is obvious but not over powering. This beer is wonderfully refreshing and is perfect for spring in the bluegrass. Don’t miss out on this one!
Style: Hoppy Wheat Ale with Lemongrass
Hops: Bravo and Lemon drop
Alcohol by Volume: 5.4% | IBU: 30
Taste Profile: Spring got sprung with this funky monkey. We dropped a big stash of Lemon drop hops into both the kettle and the dry hop – delivering a big citrus blast – and topped it off with a Lemongrass addition for a refreshing twist. Light in body with bright citrus notes, this is an extremely complex but very easy drinking brew.
