Notes / Commercial Description:
B.D.G. (Brunch. Dinner. Grub.) Country Ale: Matching the right beer to the right food is a wonderful assignment. The contemplation of point and counter-point can often be as much fun as the reward of good pairing. Sadly, in a life well lived there is not always time to contemplate what dinner will be, let alone what beverage will play best with it. Here we have selected malts to evoke the crusty breads that sit well next to every meal and seasoned it with the lemony, tarragon/thyme notes of Aramis hops. A go-to, food friendly ale for the table. Drink B.D.G because you are what you eat... and drink.

A deep copper color, Carton's anytime table beer is called BDG. It's a brown ale, but it's a lot maltier than I would expect for a Brown. Downright bready in fact. A hint of lemon and various spices round out the flavor and really make it interesting. It also comes off as robust, especially for a 6% ABV. I would buy cans of this if they brought it into regular rotation.
