Getting Our Drink On: Ruedrich's Red Seal Ale | Sharapova's Thigh

I've heard that the Thighvites....Thigheans...anyway

I've heard that you, our readers, clamoring for the next installment of Getting Our Drink On.

Ask and you shall receive.

Only I provided a little misdirection by leading certain members of our readership toward a beer that I am not about to write about.


Ruedrich's Red Seal Ale

Red Seal is the flagship brew of North Coast Brewing Company located in Mendocino County, California (Ft. Bragg, CA to be specific). I've fallen in love with tasty ale during the two summers that I've spent in LA. As I'm about to relocate to SoCal you better believe that there will always be some Red Seal in my fridge.

The full name of the tasty ale pays homage to the master brewer at North Coast, Mark Ruedrich.

American Amber Ale

5.5% ABV

Bitterness rating of 42 IBUs

Non-Vital Data
I'm not going to pretend to know what 42 IBUs means. This beer is really flavorful and hoppy yet still refreshing.

I like craft beers. The problem with craft beers is that they tend to make me full. Even a lighter wheat beer still fills me up after I've taken a few down. Red Seal is different. You could suck down more Red Seal than.....well, it's easy drink. Unlike many craft brews you can easily drink a sixer of Red Seal and still want more.

Balance is the true beauty of Red Seal. For those that prefer more flavor, Red Seal delivers. For those that want something to drink with a meal, Red Seal is perfect. If you want something light and refreshing to enjoy on the porch on a summer afternoon, pick up a Red Seal. If you prefer a hoppy beverage, Red Seal can answer that bell for you too. No one part of Red Seal stands out, but give a shot and I'm sure you'll be fan. Fans of beer are bound to be fans of Red Seal.

Red Seal is available in roughly 40 of the 50 great States. If you have not sampled Red Seal I highly recommend you take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself.

Red Seal has been awarded the Gold Medal at the World Championship of Beer in Chicago 7 times in the last 14 years. Yeah, beer snobs like it too.
