Old Chub: brown sugar, but not in a sexual way.
Old Chub: canned powerhouse, but I had it on tap.
Old Chub: decadent, but relatively inexpensive.
Old Chub: high in alcohol, but immensely drinkable.
You see, I took some advice from local folks concerning beer and went to Taco Mac on Saturday. I didn’t really want Dale’s Pale Ale – the recommended beer – and stumbled upon Old Chub in the list of high gravity beers.
Both beers are made by Oskar Blues in Colorado, so I went ahead and ordered the Old Chub. $4.25 a pint for high gravity beer to accompany a medium rare burger – who was I to disagree.
I actually ordered a Dale’s Pale Ale with my meal (I finished the Old Chub before dinner arrived) but when I was told they were out, I quaffed a second pint of Old Chub.
Now that I know you can find Old Chub in Atlanta, that it comes in cans and that it rocks my socks off, I may have a new favorite beer.
What was I saying about finding a Dogwood Pale Ale clone?
Old Chub: Scotch strong ale in a can, but I’ll be damned if you don’t love it too!
