Beer Review; Pressure Drop by Werk Force Brewing
I’m sure by now…
All of you are cuddled up by your televisions promptly watching the Patriots getting their asses handed to them (as they should) by the Atlanta Falcons… and it’s to late to get anymore beer. So I’m going to write about the one that I’m drinking right now.
Now, I may be biased, considering that I work at Werk Force Brewing part time but, the fact still remains true… I’ve never had a bad beer from there. Ever. Period. Pressure Drop is available in 4 pack cans and growler fills and is conveniently located off of Route 126 in Plainfield IL for all of you local Chicagoans.
First off, the mouth feel… It’s perfectly carb’d and absolutely delicious. The aroma that you get off of the glass as you stick you pudgy face into it is absolutely fantastic. It’s utterly citrusy. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s no The Beer Formerly Know As… by Werk Force which, is the epitome of all IPA’s but, it does satisfy the urge and itch of the bitter IPA.
It comes off as smooth and rich in flavor but not overwhelming. The papaya, grapefruit, and pineapple is prominent in this beer. It’s light enough that it doesn’t fully afront the palate but, there’s enough there that it makes you realize that, “Hey! There’s some actual flavor in this beer!”
It’s technically called a “Farmhouse IPA” which means that it’s got a bit of a “wild” taste to it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saison Saison in french literally means Farmhouse Ale because the farmers back in the day used to make it to pay the people that worked in their fields. It comes in at a hardy 7.8% ABV, so you know that a 4 pack of 16oz cans is probably going to put you on your ass. Listen though… It’s great to get fucked up but, sometimes it’s just nice to hit that low-key nice buzz and enjoy the better things in life while being able to remember them.
This beer for me gets a good ‘ol 8/10. You may say, “Nate, you haven’t rated a beer under 8 since you’ve been writing.” I’ll tell you this. It’s because A. I don’t drink shitty beer B. You guys don’t throw me suggestions on stuff I should review (although taste is subjective) and C. the beers that I like, I’m going to review for you guys so that you know. I’m not going to waste your time with a beer that I don’t like and I’m also not going to ruin someones reputation by saying their beer sucks online because, like I said before, taste is subjective. So shoot off your questions about beer here firstname.lastname@example.org if you want something to be reviewed. Go Falcons and have a beer’tastic Sunday night!
