I don’t go out of my way to find new beer releases.
I figure, ideally, any particular beer should find it’s way close to where I’m located if they want me to try their product.
I’m an optimist, what can I say.
That being said, I just broke my own rule, and went to find ‘Chickity China The Chinese Chicken Fresh Hop IPA’ from Evil Genius Beer Company.
I couldn’t help myself, the guys at Evil Genius definitely come up with some creative names for their brews, and I HAD to go get this one.
So maybe it was only fifteen minutes out of my way, but that’s a huge deal for me, traffic and red lights are annoying. (You know…)
But, I had the Barenaked Ladies song in my head the entire time, so it wasn’t that awful of a trip.
What’s in a name?
Good question, glad I thought of it.
Don’t worry, I won’t go all Romeo & Juliet on you, that would just be weird.
Creativity in naming a Beer goes a long way, especially for someone like myself, with pop culture references getting me every time.
This is what Evil Genius Beer does does to me.
I want to try everything they brew, even if it’s not a style of Beer I generally like, or purchase.
Lucky for me, though, ‘Chickity China The Chinese Chicken Fresh Hop IPA’ is definitely a style I enjoy.
All of it.
This beer is good.
They got me on the name, but I stayed for the taste.
I probably should have grabbed more than two 4-packs of this beer, but you never really know, you know?
I should have known.
That’s my bad.
I’ll grab more ‘Chickity China The Chinese Chicken Fresh Hop IPA’ whenever I see it.
