March is Green Flash Beer Month…’Cause Why Not??

Green-Flash

In the early months of 2013, Arkansas gave a warm welcome to one of the hottest breweries in the United States, Green Flash Brewing Company.   Since that time, we have been flooded with wonderful and award-winning creations by brilliant people from Green Flash.

Based in San Diego, Green Flash Brewing Co. was founded in 2002. It didn’t take them long to etch a name for themselves in one of the most competitive markets in the country, California’s West Coast. Green Flash beers are distinctive in that they provide a cleverly modern twist on traditional styles.

What you may not know about Green Flash Brewing is that they have racked up more trophies, medals, ribbons, and accolades than Michael Phelps, Kim Jong Un, Wilbur from Charlotte’s web, and your kid…combined.

We know a great thing when we see it.  We also know great beer.  That’s why we’d like to dub March “Green Flash Month,” as this beer will taste amazing with any basketball game, spring evening, or casual nude stroll.

We will feature some more reviews of green flash beer, but here are some to get your started:  Hop Head Red, Imperial IPA, Double Stout, West Coast IPA.

    Due to my constant harping, the management at Ace Liquor in Cabot now carries West Coast IPA, Palate Wrecker, and Green Bullet. The management has finally figured out that craft beer drinkers are serious. If you want other GF styles there, just stop in and talk to the head guy, Jared….or Justin…can’t remember. Fellow Cabotians unite to make Ace Liuor a true craft beer store!
