Join the Pint Jockeys BOTM Club
Happy New Year, Pint Jockeys! This year, rather than set yourself up for failure, why not choose a resolution you can actually keep? A resolution to broaden your horizons and try at least one new craft beer every month in 2012!
If that resolution weren’t tempting enough, the Pint Jockeys are going to make it even easier with our new Beer of the Month feature! While we’ve been keeping you entertained with the weekly seasonal posts, we want to do something to get our readers more involved.
Enter Beer of the Month (BOTM.) With this new feature, we’ll start off each month highlighting a different brew and giving fellow Pint Jockeys a full 30 days to pick it up, try it, and of course, comment on the BOTM thread below. We’ll even go a step further and offer a taste of the brew at our monthly tasting events held the third Thursday of each month at the Del Papa Distribution Centers in Galveston, Beaumont and Victoria, Texas.
That being said, we’ll kick of 2012 with Magic Hat Circus Boy –an American Hefeweizen. By Definition, Hefeweizen is traditionally a German brew coming from the words Hefe (yeast) and Weizen (wheat.) Magic Hat’s American spin on the Hefeweizen offers a unique and refreshing wheaty brew with an ABV of 4.5. Luckily, the brew is available year round and is fairly easy to find. If you run into trouble, just come out to the tasting event on January 19 where we’ll have Circus Boy and a couple of other Magic Hat selections for your sampling pleasure!
Now, who’s ready to start keeping those New Year’s Resolutions?
