Notes: The life of a Charleston Food & Beverage professional (F&B pro, to the cool kids) is a daunting one, something we know all too well. However, it does come with perks, one being the “shift beer” waiting for you at the end of a long stretch of service. In honor of our past exploits, and our friends still living the dream out there, we brewed a “shift beer” that goes down easy while easing your pain. The original Shiftee is a Golden Ale with a burly ABV and all the fun, fruity and spicy notes you’d expect from the yeast’s esters and phenols (respectively).

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau. Had a yellow color and a clear texture. There was a half inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: Smelled of hops, malt, and a bit of citrus thrown in. Typically like a blond ale.

T: Tasted of light hops, sweet malt, and some citrus. Definitely more complex than most blonds. A solid flavor. The booze is very much evident, much more so than you usually find in the style. It is slightly off-putting.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a slightly gritty finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A generally well done, slightly off-kilter take on the blond ale.
