Casco Bay Riptide

Casco Bay RiptideAfter a long weekend of beeriness, I took two days off from drinking and reviewing. I’ve had enough of that mess, so it’s time to get back to business.

Tonight I’m watching the movie Basic. I’m pairing it with a glass of Casco Bay Riptide. Riptide is a red ale brewed by Shipyard Brewery.

When we were in Portland in May I do recall trying some of this Riptide on draught. I don’t recall a thing about it.

The brew is pretty much a straight up red. Starts out smooth and creammy – malty. Fades into red hoppy bitterness. Generally a pretty mild red. Not a particularly interesting beer, but an easy drinker.
