Short's Bloody Beer

American craft beer is artisan. Some breweries even have that in their name. More and more beers are pushing the envelope of style and blurring the confines within. Short’s Brewing Company doesn’t have it in the name but, for as long as I can remember, they have been putting out some wacky beer flavors. Style unknown is their destination that they frequently seem to shoot for, hitting the bulls eye on regularity.

Bloody Beer is another one of the artisan beers from Short’s. When I first noticed the beer and label, I didn’t know what to expect. Is it a Halloween gimmick beer? Is it a beer with cherry juice or similar added? Reading the label leads to more: “…fermented with roma tomatoes and spiced with tellicherry peppercorns, celery seed, fresh horseradish and dill.” Bloody Mary went through my head. After tasting the beer, I would have to say it is pretty damn close. I split the twelve ounce bottle with Rich and would have to say six ounces was more than enough. I would have it every so often in small quantities. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: In 1221, Genghis Khan killed 1,748,000 people at Nishapur in one hour.
