Magic Hat Brewing Company (New England Beer Vacation Part 1)
Posted by BoaBeerBlog on August 6, 2009
The first thing on my to-do list after pulling into Carlisle, MA for summer vacation:
Visit Colonial Spirits, which is a ten-minute drive away in nearby Acton.
Colonial Spirits is the best beer store ever!
I loaded my cart with all sorts of beer that I can’t find back home. Although I can find brews from Magic Hat Brewing Company (Burlington, VT) in Maryland, I tossed the Magic Hat Summer Variety 12-Pack in my cart because I love the brewery and I had never tried two of the four beers in the mix pack.
I sampled these Magic Hat brews on Saturday, July 25:
- #9 (Pale Ale with apricot extract)
- Lucky Kat (IPA)
- Odd Notion (Belgian Blonde)
- Wacko (Beet extract gives this beer its beautiful red color)
Odd Notion was my favorite, and the color of Wacko was unlike any beer I had ever seen before. My picture doesn’t do justice to this bright red brew. Get a Magic Hat Summer 12-Pack to see for yourself!
