Luxury Beer for a Mother's Cheer


Mother! The center of love, backbone of strength, support for the faint-hearted, and queen of the threshold! Her inner character is one of endurance, calm under pressure, constancy, joy! She sees the perfection in her children when nobody else does. Heart-felt happiness may come from a simple gift – a poster of an F-15 screaming over an aircraft carrier, for instance – and this happiness is complete.

In celebration of this Lady of the Day, raise your chalice to toast her wit and spirit! She deserves the honor! …and maybe she will let you taste her beer!

For Mom’s pleasure, one of these enticing brews will sweep her off her feet!

The Mother of All Beers, brewed by Pizza Port & Pizza Port Brewing Company, Solana Beach, California, USA is a seductive quadruple of mahogany tones, with deep streaks of ruby that glow from the edges. Lingering under the compact head of light beige is a 10% abv that peeks through the delicate lacing. The complexity of this Belgian is alluring – ripened bananas, figs, brandied raisins, dried apricots. The fruity esters are surrounded by caramel and vanilla, tempered by earthy peat and warming alcohol. The brew slithers down the throat, like liquid silk, increasing in intensity as it warms. Its palate seizes your tastebuds with the unquenchable fire of desire! Magnificent!

Mother Lager from Magic Hat Brewing Company in South Burlington, Vermont, USA follows the tradition of the German pilsener in its orange-gold brew, glistening with clarity. Little bubbles of carbonation feed its tight white head, as it slowly settles to an intricate pattern of the finest Belgian lace. An aroma of German Saaz envelopes your senses, while spice and grasses dance in the background. Taste sensations of delicate hops with a citric tang and spiciness are met with a light graininess and clean finish. A superb delicacy!

Calumet Queen, brewed by Three Floyds Brewing LLC in Munster, Indiana, USA is a luscious kölsch of golden hazy sunrise, with a light white head. Aromas are herbal – light fresh-cut hay, mild hops, and spice – with the flavor profile following suit. A low 4.5% abv adds to the delicate, crisp palate. Clean and highly drinkable!

In celebration of all sides of a mom’s complex persona, Founders Devil Dancer from Founders Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA fits the bill. This monster brew, with 13% abv, glows an iridescent reddish amber with a ˝” pale tawny head and wispy rings of lace. This double India Pale Ale slinks closely into the realm of Barleywine stying, but hovers just this side of an IPA with its perfect blend of sweet malt and huge, earthy hops. Despite the strong citric presence, it is full of body and creamy on the tongue. Spectacular!

Happy Mother’s Day!
Cheers!
