Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
When looking back at Daisy Cutter by Half Acre Beer Company I was surprised twice by one beer. The first was the fact that I never had this during my 365 American craft beers in 365 day journey. I thought for sure I had that beer. I know I had it, I just thought it bubbled to the top of one specific day during the year. No worries. The second is the fact that it has been almost two years to the day (December 30th, 200) that I wrote my original review of Daisy Cutter. I have had plenty since but it just doesn’t seem that short of a while ago that Half Acre was an up and comer on the Chicago craft beer scene.
Daisy Cutter is definitely my favorite locally brewed American Pale Ale in spite of Three Floyds Brewing Company being in close vicinity. Citrus, grassy, and floral hop aroma are all inviting, keeping your interest throughout.
Daisy Cutter will continue to be a go to American craft beer for me. It is a year round beer so it shouldn’t be hard to pick up. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: When sailors speak of sheets (as in “four sheets to the wind”) they are not talking about sails. A sheet in nautical terminology is a rope or a chain.
