Great Lakes is a brewery that I have been a fan of for quite some time.
They first sucked me in a few years ago, with their ‘Burning River Pale Ale’.
I’ve been trying out all of their brews ever since that are available to me.
Now, I generally don’t come across many different varieties from Great Lakes Brewing, besides their usual notables.
Until last week, when @TheStraightHops and I attended a beer event in Absecon, NJ.
We were told about a certain liquor store down the street we should check out, and as we had some time to kill, we decided to go.
Well, let me just tell you, this place is a Mecca for craft brews.
We could’ve walked around in there for hours, if we didn’t have anything else to do, which we actually did for a change.
I happened to find a Great Lakes beer I haven’t seen before, ‘Sharpshooter Session Wheat IPA’.
I should probably start off with, I’m not a huge wheat beer fan.
But I figured why not?
I don’t mind the the occasional one, but I do love my IPA’s.
This beer doesn’t disappoint.
‘Sharpshooter’ is definitely a solid beer.
If you enjoy a good IPA, and Wheats as well, you have a winner here.
You get a nice wheat taste at the beginning, and a good flow of hops at the end.
I highly recommend you give this one a shot.
Overall: I give it 3 out of 5 Kegs
