This is my second Rye IPA in the past few days, and I’m not sure I know what’s gotten in to me! I’ve never been huge on rye, but something about the light flavor, not as heavy as a typical IPA but still gives you that malty-ness I can’t say I dislike, has me coming back for more; plus it’s one helluvuh beer to drink while studying. This Rooftop Rye IPA has me reconsidering my feelings for red beer right about now.
See those fridges in the picture? Yeah, this is why I love Ballard Beer Company! Not only is it a tap room, but it’s one awesome bottle shop as well. And, the best part, you can crack open any of their bottles/cans and enjoy them here OR take them home! With the pub tables, high ceilings and chandeliers, this is one of my favorite hidden gems.
