Back Forty Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale

American craft beer is creative to say the least. That is the entire idea behind craft beer: push the boundaries of style and quite possibly create some new ones along the way. I think many American craft breweries are doing just that.

Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale by Back Forty Brewing Company doesn’t exactly break the mold but the addition of the honey and honey malt really make this beer for me. I really like honey and having it a beer and/or style that I am not used to seeing it in, makes my taste buds happy.

Truck Stop Honey has a good but mild bouquet while the taste definitely picks it up a notch and delivers. The beer is refreshing, crisp, and easy drinking on a very warm evening. So much so that I didn’t realize the beer was three-quarters gone in a matter of writing the review. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: The Declaration of Independence was not signed on July 4th. It was signed in Philadelphia on July 8th, and was first read before Washington’s army the following day. Nor did all the delegates sign the document in 1776. Thomas McKean of Delaware did not add his name until 1777. After its ratification, the Declaration of Independence was moved from place to lace, finding shelter in ten different cities and five different states between 1776 and 1951. During this time it twice escaped destruction by fire and was almost captured by the British in both the revolution and the War of 1812. Since 1952 the document has been kept in the National Archives in Washington D.C.
