I like drinking with a cause — one that you feel like your liver will slightly feel good about.
I recently sampled Fireman’s Brew, an idea conceived by two Los Angeles-based firefighters after extinguishing a brushfire in the local mountains, Fireman’s Brew grew out of their vision to create a premium line of handcrafted ales and lagers that would quench their thirsts after an exhausting day on the fire lines. Fireman’s Brew’s collection of micro-brewed beers is created using only the finest of all-natural ingredients to deliver bold, full-flavored, traditional tastes and easy drinking refreshment. In addition, Fireman’s Brew is committed to giving back to the firefighter community that inspired it by donating a portion of company proceeds to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation – the nation’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to honoring fallen firefighters and providing assistance to their surviving families.
I had an assortment to sip!
BLONDE – PILSNER STYLE LAGER
The original golden lager is the lightest of the beers. Smooth, light malt flavors combine with just enough hops for balance to deliver a crisp and refreshing beer with a clean finish and no bitter aftertaste.
BRUNETTE – GERMAN DOUBLEBOCK
A traditionally styled German Doublebock with rich structure and bold flavors, yet with a smooth easy-drinking taste and finish. Handcrafted with imported hops and chocolate malts to create a strong, yet refined, microbrew of uncompromised quality.
REDHEAD – RED AMBER ALE
A flavor-packed red amber ale with smooth, rich caramel flavors. The combination of Yakima Valley hops and 3 different crystal malts compliment a solid, toasty malt base to create a unique and flavorful ale.
IPA – INDIA PALE ALE
A bold and refreshing West Coast-style India Pale Ale (IPA) made with a delicious and aromatic blend of Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Galena hops.
Fireman’s Brew is currently available in California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Ohio, Kansas, Virginia, Michigan, Hawaii, West Virginia, Louisiana, Minnesota, Utah, and Missouri. I love the names of these drinks. I guess every fireman needs a blonde, brunette or redhead in their life! http://firemansbrew.com/off-duty-drinks/
