Sadly, this bullshit is not a joke.

"This lovely beer is a light lager, with low carbs and just 97 calories. The taste leans toward the smoothness of malt over the dry bitterness of hops It’s the taste that women prefer. You’re going to love it."

what. the. fuck.

No, I am NOT going to "love it." I'm going to ridicule and hate everything about it, from its sexist and demeaning packaging (a more extreme lady hourglass figure than I've seen on most macrobrewery labels), to its bullshit recipe, to its totally offensive declaration on what "women prefer" (newsflash - some of us LIKE hops, dumbass).

I can't tell if the fact that this is made by a woman makes it better or worse. I just hope the Pink Boots Society gives her a lesson or two on what Women in the Beer Industry are actually up to. Jesus.

Did you know Drake's Brewing has a Barrel Aged Tap House? Tasters, half-pints, 6-packs, growlers...this place is awesome. Particularly today, with such amazing weather & a $5 rib/pizza/salad lunch thanks to Bay Area Beer Socials! Drake's is already one of my favorite local breweries, and today I found a new reason why: Alpha Session, a Nor-Cal bitter that's only 3.8%! And SO delicious. Light and sweet with some pleasant hops, with a slightly butterscotch aftertaste. Absolutely amazing - we're getting a growler for tomorrow's croquet party!
