I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth I mean when I say “dandelion beers”. I am referring to that absolutely bright and cheerful color found in a few of the really great craft beer styles available on the market. These types of brews have a color when poured that simply cheers you up just looking at the brew in the glass, let alone drinking it. Something about a craft beer that can manage to improve your mood while just sitting there and evolving in the glass is truly exceptional.
There are a few different brew styles that I’ve found with this luscious and happy color when poured. Below is a list of the styles, as well as some basic information on each one. I’m sure at least one or two will suit your tastes and raise your spirits, as they’ve done for others who tried them.
I’m sure you’ve noticed a bit of a trend in these brewing styles. For example, they all seem to be based in Belgium or Germany. It seems that these folks loved to create brews that had this beautiful color feature, be it by accident or design. This does seem to explain the vitality and happy visage of those Pauly Girls we see in pictures doesn’t it? No matter the reason behind their creation of brews with a cheerful hue, we certainly thank them for the great flavors that they have allowed us to try over the years.
We’d love to hear about the many dandelion brews you’ve found in your journeys. Leave us a comment and perhaps your notes will be the spark for our next feature post! Also, don’t forget to pay us a visit later this year, as we’ll be opening our own doors to the public as soon as our construction is complete and the taproom and grotto are ready. Until then, from all of us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault, happy tasting and safe journey!
