Butternuts Porkslap Pale Ale – Leave Out the Pretention

July 19, 2010

Packaging beer in a can has a mild delimiting effect on the amount of pretension in a beer.  I like.  The folks at Butternuts Beer and Ale are good in my book.

As an aside, the amount of pretension in a beer directly correlates with the packaging.  Let’s start at the bottom of the rung, the can.  There is no doubt that beer from a can has a low-brow sort of stigma associated with it.  Next level is your standard beer bottle.  If you would like to assert how much better you are than everybody else, then start drinking from Belgian bottles, or better yet, bottles with corks.  For those that don’t know what Belgian bottles with corks look like, here you go – the standard 750 ml Belgian style bottle.

Anyway, in my quest of drinkable and go-to beers, another shining star has made its way onto my list.  It’s Porkslap Pale Ale.  There’s not much to dislike about a 4.3% ABV beer that is perfectly balanced on the malt and hops and nice and crisp.  In normal terms, it’s a no-frills yet refreshingly good beer you can drink all day and not get sick of.  It’s the kind of beer perfect for a day in the park or a day at the beach.

Luckily, Beer Menus has a bunch of places you can find Porkslap.  So grab a six-pack and drink beer the way it was meant to be consumed, without all the stuffiness.
