Sholom Zachar Experiences
Sholom Zachars are always interesting. Usually, the beer served there is a hodgepodge of American Adjunct lagers, and a variety and their light brothers. Therefore, I figured that whenever I have an interesting experience at a Sholom Zachar, I will blog about it. This week after braving the Sub-Zero temperatures to get to the shalom zachar, I walked in and I noticed a sea of green bottles. For those of you who don't know the difference, there aren't any craft breweries that use green bottles, as green bottles let in light. Light is what causes the famous skunky flavor in some of the European adjunct lagers. As I was resigning to the fact that this was going to be a dry night for me, I noticed a lone brown bottle on one of the tables. I walked over extremely interested in what the bottle was going to be. I turned it around, and sure enough while it wasn't craft, it was something quite interesting. It was Leinenkugel's Harvest Patch Shandy! While this isn't a beer I would have personally picked out, in the circumstance it was quite tasty.
