About this Blog

Inspired by the documentary "Beer Wars" I have taken on the daunting task of profiling a different beer every day in the month of November. The idea is to shine a light on some of the fabulous beers that don't have huge advertising budgets and don't command shelf space in the local super markets. These are the beers that you will find in the local taverns served by people who know and love beer.

Day 17 "Boont Amber Ale" from Anderson Valley Brewing Company

Once named the “best beer brewed in Northern California,” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian the Boont Amber Ale is the flagship beer from  Anderson Valley Brewing Company.  This is an exceptionally smooth medium bodied Pale Ale.  Boont Amber Ale weighs in at a subtle 5.8% ABV and respectively low IBU of 15.  This beer will pair well with Pasta, Chicken or any flavorful meat.

As they say in  Boonville "It's Bahl Hornin'" which means “Good Drinking” in Boontling which is a real language spoken in Boonville, CA.  To learn more about Boontling pay visit Samuel Hornes Facebook page for Boontling lessons.
