For today’s edition of “The Links” Lee Gilbert at Beerin’it suggests 6 Summer time brews, BrewReviewCrew takes on Shocktops newest ad campaign, ThePioneerWoman gives away a set of Le Creuset Cookware and Amazon.com offers warehouse deals.
Their tagline, their commercials, EVERYTHING about Shock Top in my opinion, is pretty indicative of big-beer’s new marketing strategy against the rising-tide of craft beers and breweries; discredit, poke fun at, make snobs of craft beer drinkers and craft breweries who spend too much time talking about the beer, and not enough time drinking it.
The flavor is sweet giving mellow apricot up front and just a hint of white pepper in the back. After taste is clean with a note of the fruit hanging on. This beer is very well balanced and it is a great choice if you can find it.
Today, because I love ya, I’m giving away 3 of these sets of Le Creuset cookware in this gorgeous “Caribbean” blue color. Included in the set are a 3 1/2 quart French oven, a 1 3/4 quart saucepan, and a 9-inch skillet.
