Notes/Commercial Description:
For beer folks, Chico, CA, and New Glarus, WI, are must-see capitals on the U.S. brewing map, but getting between the two is no simple feat. There and Back is named for the planes, trains, and zeal needed to connect them. This classic English-style Bitter is a complex yet easy-drinking mix of toasty malt and a fruity, herbal hop flavor.

New Glarus is fiercely loyal to its home state, growing to one of the largest breweries in the U.S. without selling a single drop outside of the borders of Wisconsin. With those local tastes in mind, New Glarus has perfected traditional German styles and invented masterful versions of complex and intense fruit beers featuring Wisconsin-grown ingredients.

This pours a warm copper-amber with generous foaming.

There’s a great aroma that showcases the malts while allowing room for a wonderfully vibrant hop combination. I get a toasted caramel malt note which is balanced by a tropical fruit punchbowl of hoppy goodness. The flavor has that same caramel malty character, rich and fulfilling without being weighted down or heavy. The hops play well in this field with a guava mango floral citrus mélange. It’s not what I’d expect from a run-of-the-mill bitter but here it works, and it works wonderfully. So glad I have another bottle of this to enjoy again later.
