Days of the Beer, February 4

The beer for today is Sweetwater Brewing Company Trippel Lindy.

On Feb. 4, 1902, Charles Augustus Lindbergh was born. Lindgergh (nicknamed "Lucky Lindy") was an American aviator, author, inventor, and explorer. Lindbergh rose to fame by flying solo non-stop from New York to Paris, in the single-seat, single-engine Spirit of St. Louis.

Lindy died August 26, 1974 from lymphoma.

As to the beer:

Sweetwater Brewing Company is located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Creeper aged in red wine barrel - cask with blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries Dry hopped with Cent, Simcoe, and Cascade * 3 yeasts, 3 berries. 3 hops, 3 fermentations *

I'm not sure where you could get this, but if it's from Sweetwater, it's probably pretty good.

So, for Lucky Lindy, have a trippel Lindy.

I've been told that Sweetwater makes a really nice Blueberry beer as well. Anyone try it?

Yes, I've had Sweetwater Blue. But that was about 2 years ago. I don't remember too much about it.
