The wind is blowing in some fierce weather from the Great North Woods. Along with some snow, a six pack of beer came with this latest round of Winter weather. It's just what I needed to pad my beer gut for the coming deep freeze.
Leinenkugel's Red is the latest refreshing beverage to tiptoe on my tastebuds. As you can see in the graphic, it is indeed red. Red beers have always been among my favorites (Killian's Irish Red on tap may be my signature beer).
Red beers are typically full flavored without any bitter aftertaste. And, they're usually not as heavy as their darker porter or stout counterparts. Basically, they have everything that makes beer good for me.
Leinenkugel's Red is no exception. It is a beer I'd serve to a connoisseur or Joe Six-pack. Nothing fancy here. Leinie is just simply a good basic beer. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it, but I would select it over most macrobrews (Bud, Miller, etc.) If you get the opportunity, be sure to try this beer.
Jake Leinenkugel said they brewed this beer for loggers at the end of the 19th century. It turned out that this lager for loggers goes over well with a 21st century crowd as well. Be sure to check out the website for more Leinie Lore.
Availability: Widely available, brewed year round.
