Day 179 Drink: Thirsty Dog Twisted Kilt
Anytime you can be at a baseball game on a warm evening and enjoy a craft brew is a good night. Thanks to Tom and Sarah for generously providing some great seats right behind first base, I had the chance to watch the Cleveland Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays this evening, while sipping on a couple Thirsty Dog Twisted Kilts.
Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. is located in Akron, Ohio. If you look hard enough at Progressive Field you can find a stand or two serving Thirsty Dog, Great Lakes and Leinenkugel on draught. It is worth the effort.
Thirsty Dog Twisted Kilt is the brewery's take on an Scottish export ale. At 5 percent alcohol by volume the beer pours a nice warm brown color with an ample tan head. The beer is dominated by caramelized malts and is lightly hopped at just 13 IBUs. The overall result is a very smooth and easy drinking beer, perfect for watching a baseball game.
