If you couldn’t already tell, we love to support local breweries. Just a couple years old and already one of our all time favorites, Spiteful Brewing has already made a huge impact in the Chicago beer scene. Customer service manager, Ben Morgan of Binny’s in Lakeview is a big fan of their latest release. Plus, it’s in cans.
Why do you like it?
Big juicy hop flavors, citrus, pine, and apricot. It has a great balance and is very pleasant for a big hitting pale ale.
On a scale from 1-5, how would you rate it?
4. It has great complexity that you only get with a handful of pale ales. It is also a great sessionable unlike other hoppy pale ales. It’s amazing because it’s a single hopped pale ale using only Simcoe hops. Most beer geeks know Simcoe to generally give off a faint onion or garlic aroma and flavor, but you get none of that in this beer.
Is there a particular food you’d pair it with?
Thai, Indian, Mexican, a hearty stew or chili. Football watching food!
Yum, the best kind of food! What interests you the most in this industry?
I’m passionate about beer, but I never go wrong with a South American wine, a Spanish wine or even a really good gin and tonic. Also, I enjoy connecting with others in the beer scene through social media.
