What do you like about 33 Acres’ beer?
Behind the slick marketing and minimalist aesthetic are some very well-made and thoughtfully crafted beers. The majority of 33’s beers are session strength, which is great, because I have work to do and I can’t afford to be hungover (a serious workplace hazard in this line of work).
What word best describes 33 Acres’ beer?
Balance. Brewmaster Dave Varga has been around a long time and he knows the most important characteristic (and often the most elusive) of sessionable beers is balance. No single element is ever allowed to overpower a 33 beer; they all work in harmony with each other, complementing or contrasting as needed.
What’s your favourite beer by 33 Acres?
33 Acres of Darkness is a fine example of a German schwarzbier. Roasty chocolate and coffee flavours are right up front, but the hop bitterness keeps the sweet maltiness in check, finishing crisp and dry and never overstaying its welcome.
