Post Brewing Co.’s Meathooks Mild Ale

Beer name: Meathooks

Brewery: Post Brewing Co.

Style: Mild ale

Price: $9.50 for a six-pack

ABV: 4.1%

Flavor: A wintertime profile with a summertime weight.

Aroma: Malty and welcoming

Would taste best with: A light meat dish like a steak salad would pair splendidly with this full-flavored, lower alcohol brew.

Overall: This beer is misunderstood in its characterization as a mild ale. At first glance, Meathooks resembles a high-ABV porter. However, at first taste the drinker is delightfully surprised at the weightlessness and light malt flavor this ale packs.

Final Comments: Beginner beer lovers and seasoned drinkers alike will appreciate the complex profile the Meathooks mild ale brings to the table (or campfire, or picnic …). Meathooks transcends seasonal stereotypes and continues to be a mainstay on the Post Brewing Co.’s beer list and hopefully in your fridge!
