Monday Beer Review: Hercules Double IPA

    I’ve decided that because every single one of my weekends is spent drinking fantastic beers, Monday will be the perfect day to review beer.  Buffalo is turning into a great city for beer, with great places to get fantastic beverages like The Blue Monk, Cole’s, Pearl Street Brewery, Village Beer Merchant, Pizza Plant, and many more.  There are plenty of places to go out for great beer and plenty of options to bring some home, such as create a six pack or filling up a growler.  This weekend I drank a few beers, one being the Hercules Double IPA a fantastic treat brought to us by The Great Divide Brewing Company out of Denver, Colorado.  Up until Saturday my favorite double IPA was Southern Tier’s which i still highly recommend especially if you can get it on tap.  The Hercules was a fantastic blend of citrus, hops, with enough bitter to bring a smile to my face and a nod of approval.  This beer would go amazing with pizza or any food that can come “Buffalo” style.

At about $5.75-$6.00 a bottle, the Hercules Double IPA does not disappoint.

ABV:  10%
