Days of the Beer, January 26

The beer for today is Pacific Coast Gray Whale Ale.

On January 26, 2004, in Tainan City, Taiwan, a buildup of gas inside a decomposing sperm whale, measuring more than 55 feet long and weighing 50 tons, caused the whale to explode!

The explosion was reported to have splattered blood and whale guts over surrounding shop-fronts, bystanders, and cars.

As to the beer:

Pacific Coast Brewing is located in Oakland, California.
Pacific Coast Gray Whale Ale: Our house pale ale,medium body, amber, well balanced bitterness and sweetness. Bronze medal winner at the 1991 Great American Beer Festival.
I'm not sure if this beer would be a flavor explosion in your mouth, but, for the exploding whale of 2004, have yourself a Gray Whale Ale.
