 Good Faith Strong Ale, Discretion Brewing, California

 Good Faith Strong Ale, Discretion BrewingBonnie Horgos, writing for the Santa Cruz Sentinel, picked this strong ale from California’s Discretion Brewing Company as her ‘beer of the week’, which she said was a “creamy delight with notes of vanilla and whiskey.”

She said: “Remember Butterbeer in Harry Potter? While I wasn’t old enough to drink alcohol when the series came out — I’m younger than you think — I always pictured the beverage as being rich, creamy and of course magical. I think Discretion Brewing hit the nail on the head with Good Faith. While the strong ale packs a punch, it teases you with slight notes of vanilla and whiskey (it was aged in a whiskey barrel). As a mere muggle with a thirst for beer, it’s nice to sip on something magical. This beer needs some cured, salty meat. I’m talking prosciutto piled on top of crusty bread.”

Strong ale, 9%
